by Andrea Laws

by the crumbs of desperate times
the dawn of leaking spirits approaches
unfolding creations of new evolution and
bracing itself against excuses of
distant relatives lost in time
over matter that didn’t matter

forget the past
remember the future
circle life now seen
break free the environment
containing ungraspable imaginations
belonging in a cage

destroy fear surrounding mortality
loathing in a forbidden destiny
capturing all wants to say
eyes wide to a carnival of the unknown
ride the ride with no tracks
embrace your living
