EVERY PART OF ME
IS SCREAMING OUT LOUD

but it’s over now

dragon, you’re out of time
every minutiae bears clocks of crooked sameness
all the same time
all
fro
zen
so
lid

YOU KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT
DON’T YOU

things fucking things
all thrown over other lopsided things
bears no repetition
no sameness
no repetition
no sameness

BUT I’M BLEEDING
I’M BLEEDING

out over
no
thing
caught
in
the
links
al
ter
nat
ing
con
stant
ly

there’s so much space
in the faraway place
to plant the things
you want
to see
grow

but where are you

where are you

where are you

WHERE ARE YOU

AND WHY CAN’T YOU HEAR ME
CAN YOU SEE THIS
CAN YOU HEAR THIS
DOES THIS
NEED
TO BE
REPEATED
HOW
MANY
TIMES
DO I HAVE TO SAY IT
TWICE?
HOW MANY TIMES
DOES IT HAVE
TO BE
TWICE
HOW MANY TIMES
WILL I
STAND
ON
THE
EDGE

before it all gives way
and these things don’t shift
and these things don’t mix
and these things don’t grow

“you’re the one
playing with fire,
dragonfly”

young one
dumb one
thinking out loud

“it’s rain on your parade
when it’s sun
everyday”

fuck

barely aware when i’m awake
i’m barely there
when it’s okay
i feel like everything is in circles
until it’s not

monstrous thoughts cloud this contrived thing
and it splits apart
shatters
into a thousand
disparate parts
and then it restarts

it’s again until it’s not

chasing rainbows
in forest aglow
full of impossible things

but this dragon i’m chasing
hasn’t been through here
since i went
and clipped its wings

 

 
JD Jurado – Dragonfly is about the experience required for real change to take place and how sometimes everything has to be erased and starting over before you can move forward. 

mi-nu-ti-ae noun
