In the Suburbs of Spacetime

the spurs turn
it only hurts
when you try to stop
the Revolution

there's no use
in starting it up again
the well's formed
fluid only moves downhill
but not all at once
there's space for a round

makes one giddy
orbiting backwards
counter-clock centrifugal
astonishment on repeat
rippled reality obscura
inside out, downside up
warped and waterlogged

have you ever heard of such a thing
not likely ... in my mind's eye
memory only works one way
even when I stand on my head
cover my ears and wriggle my toes


on the lip of oblivion
it starts at the ending
then ends at the start
but you forgot
so you don't remember

you're in prison NOW
for forgetting

that bit of ribbon
tied around your finger
pinned to your insides
doesn't unravel
it pulls when you try
doing that


just hold on

the event horizon
goes around in circles
down the drain
except on the outskirts

you can live forever
but only in the suburbs
of spacetime

live forever
lonely and aloof ...
don't take that tone with me

your science and figures
a front, a facade, a hollow-gram
a how-to for the forgetful

in the end
... anywhere along the arc ...
only we matter
matter and then matter again
don't forget that
