My mind by this time Friday night can go anywhere
and here we are
even if you’re not reading this I imagine you are
and you know who you are
just like I know who you are and here we are
where do you want to go from here?
obviously cause here
is where we choose to be
or we wouldn’t be here
oh, sure, we can call ourselves hostages
to falling to gravity
till we stand up for ourselves
and put our dukes up
our hands to the piano’s keyboard till eventually the piano falls on our heads
at least we tried
and at most
and does this make us eyes wide open explorers or blind?
Or somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean
and Christopher Columbus is standing on deck of the Santa Maria looking up at the stars
and trusts they will lead him to India
till bumping into the Bahamas wrote the character who called himself
though now he wonders if he is Bahamas.
But at least he didn’t try
he didn’t feel the need to whip out a map to define his feet
and he knew just like the stars are not above him his feet are not below him.
