i wanna be someone. of circumstance. i wanna be me. a form. with a formula. neither for nor against the world.
i am spinning retrograde. with mercury. we are having a blast at the planetary dance. running interference on iPhones.
i wanna be alone. having to catch squirrels and dig roots to survive.
i wanna ton of friends. none of whom i ever met. all who might love me. on demand.
i wanna dream. come true. a hole. a head. some space. to tread. my mood. blood red.
i wanna be told. what to do. my mood. sad blue. reflective of you.
a lake. a storm. thawing an ice age. melting my formula. my life. into a basin.
when the children come home from the forest where they play, they may wash their dirty hands in me and
both of us…
