from Hieronymus Firebrain "There" 1993


we were all particles fashioned in light
we all know what we could do if we might

then our wall were our worlds, we kept out the sea
we learned to divide and it twained me from thee

i remember

we used each other, the big and the small
fell into two genders as if that were all

an ear in the backside flipped us to the right side
we favored one half for the rest of the ride

I remember

we were all good things, full force and strange
crawled out of the ocean into the rain

the feeling of sovereignty comes only with age
there’s more to the future than we can presage
