i’m changing tides,
a river bursting seams;
i’m not afraid of standing still
if i’m the only one not moving.
i douse myself in you, my skin alight
with million dazzling shades of white
and nothing matters: time is swaying here.
i pause my beat for night on night:
we know morality is all there is to care for–
–and then you say mistakes can sparkle in the sun,
i need to run and leave you in my place:
a human obelisk.
