You Will Be There When You've Been There

You Will Be There When You've Been There
L. Edgar Otto Jul.28, 2010

One day you will miss the sea
your blood drawn and settled down
into your foothold space in crystal city

Only in your dreams will your longings
dwell two places at once, your heart
transparent in its nakedness

As light goes deep into blue forgetfulness
far from the city's colors, your center and
all connections to others and long life

Until in the violet death you make your own light]
answering the decaying dusty scud of rain
warnings to be seen, your ghostly magic inferred

That all opaque in secrets, isolation the greater threat
than the weathered vulnerability of our souls.
