dinosaurs

there’s a thought i’ve lost for ever

or every thought I’ve lost forever

has been living under a rock

somewhere

there’s a stream   a slippery stream of dreams

i’ve let them go   i let them slip through my fingers

but they linger somewhere in the

universe

everything that disappears here

finds its place in a different galaxy or i’d like to believe

 

if today you decide to leave

your scent will linger

your blood painted      thinly traced along the whitewashed walls

and your skin will shift slowly in another place

 

we comfort ourselves  as  wavers faith

even the most dangerous predator

extinct

still lingers in oil and the love of american soil

 

you will stay
