God Put The Moon Where The Sun Don’t Shine

Waves floating over the ocean

are oblivious to the currents beneath the sea

or the moon



are needing that number after infinity

to see

that even infinity is expanding

while nothing compares to nothing

though did we ever see nothing in the first place?

And why this need for any sense of reality at all?

What makes the mind scratch for patterns in the eye of chaos?

Drawing on mythology and constellations is our grammar

to declare

we know nothing

though we’re too smart to know something

cause we’ve got a name for everything

even little breaks of light

a million years sleeping

are still creeping

light speeding fleeting

through an endless ocean of night

giving the moon its glow

and the earth its sight.

    I wish I had something to offer you that would reflect how I feel about this one. “It’s good” sounds inadequate, but it is good and that’s all I have so it will have to suffice.

      Thank you for any comment at all. “It’s good” is quite nice. I’d even take: “You suck! and you should never write again, I am so offended by your lack of artistry and humanity!” Really. I’d read it as a compliment you even took the time to say anything.
