we don’t-land

once there you’ll see us everywhere

those who feel not here
very much aware
that 1. relativity grounds us,
gives weight to that floating 2. we feel,
comfortable highs at varying depths; within 3. we are titled
to be without 4. an insecurity is illusory at best

tethers loosed
when friction bore holes in well-worn philosophies,
tore, and rubbed our tender bits
raw

more than casualties of meant-to-be,
we revel in the promise of uncertainty
in lieu of any tangible truth
or allegiance to the tried
(beyond that it has been)

defer no dream
to the realm of banality,
to the constructs we see
5. crumble 6. under their grip,
7. the bullshit fist saturated with cowardice and
lies 8. neatly nestled into lies:
protect, serve, 9. kill
automatically, incidentally, thirsty-
10. eyed to deny human dignity,

through institutionalized manipulation
contemporary crusades of divine-
staked claim to human capital

imprisoned for the fee,
plundered at the chest
black and brown commodities
rich, [bullet-]warm bodies
for sake of “order” stifle,
as the guilty, gilded cold
line the limits of this land of the free

ours is not 11. the path of least resistance, nor conscience wiped clean,
oblivious, 12. guided along the seam of two dimensions 13. flat,
between 14. yells of this-and-that-and again;
15. plane tugged to extremes, 16. splaying monuments 17. to demise

we roam the fluid above,
navigate the unbound,
being
the stuff of it, self
+ human
in spite of

we remain
present, yet unfound
