transcending

by Poet on the Piano   Oct 27, 2021


chase me into the forest
see if i care
if you claw at my shins
with rust-colored aggression
if you rip out tree roots
and throw them in my path

it's such a shame
isn't it

that i'm a failed human

i outrun you in my dreams
and you never seem to be
perplexed

you know
there's more out there

than the futile verbs i write
in a fusion of ink and blood

so consume me

dissolve me

betray me

let me feel
all edges of you
