like an angel child

the poem will write itself
there is no need to worry
you just have to free the mind
from whatever heaviness
falsely resides inside

a simple flashing light
whether external or otherwise
can change the future
an apple of unusual delight
wobbling atop a table

if you find yourself
sailing in the multiverse
like some sort of angel child
be sure to rack up the points
on the nebula galilee

testing the multiverse theory

though the sun shines bright
there is no warmth to be found
not in deed or word or thought
the air turbid and cold to the touch
like the winter warlock himself

this world is oddly familiar
resembling places I’ve imagined
or envisioned in waking dreams
like a lost forest frozen in time
silvery trees taller than skyscrapers

many times I’ve climbed to the top
meticulous like the caterpillar
alone but at peace and determined
exercising thought into action
inescapably free falling through space
