ivory tower in the woods
life moves in lines around us,
every turn the last.
a blur of color in your fixed set
all this time you spun only to be yourself
time is time as it goes by and i
i dance in the sunlight for you
(where only lies can slow us down)
a crimson seed sprouting strange
beneath the dull and musky air,
out from cracks of concrete
you grow eddied to the world
broken with the heartbeats
of my heart.
