Roasting Marshmallows over the Phoenix

When we’re this close to that close

so we think we know

how close we are

to too close

how I can see the sun

but I can’t feel the sun

and how far we are to the sun

till we’re hit on our wings


when reality seems to be

dripping off a Seurat painting

hanging in this gallery


when all we can see

are the dots as they can be


and not as this smoke burning

these wings

when these wings land

upon the fireplace channel

playing upon the screen of the tv

to bring filmed reality

to heat what we can ever see

and what we can never feel

can it be

that what we can never see

is simply infinity

if we

can just


that we

can’t see
