it almost makes you think you’re not going anywhere

i thought i was moving so fast
over this ground
then i realized
the ground is moving so fast
under me

the whole damn planet
is moving so fast
it almost makes you think
you’re not going anywhere

we’re always running
to catch up with the stillness
talking our way into silence
and screwing ourselves
out of love

let’s stop
and by stop
i mean go
to a higher place
that is so much closer to the ground
than the inflated ideas we have
about how to move up in this world

i am so inside of you
i can’t even tell where i begin
and you end
probably because we don’t end
or begin
but keep on going
like the desert miles
and the rotation of the earth’s axis
our heart is a clock
that keeps time
in beats
not minutes
it has
no arms
or hands
or place to go

there is nothing it is reaching for

i’ve discovered
it is possible
to be held
even if there is nothing
to hold on to
