constant depature while always arriving
by Arianna Pendragon
Age Group: Adult
Given an object: perpetual motion.
Comparing gravity, the weight of the world
And the way the floor jumps to the music
At the rhythm of a teenage heartbeat.
Their actions not quite cries for help
So much as the vibrancy of seemingly eternal life.
Light cast upon the repetion of everyday life,
Endlessly going through the motion
Caring, pretending, enough to try to help
Eveyone and their daughters in the third world
Undistinguishable from their "true" love's heartbeat
The tribal quality of that foreign music.
Derving personality, next week's law from music
That loops through the stereo, having consumed the life
Of lesser men. Stopping the pain in the heartbeat
With one swift, if clich, motion.
Another tragic ending, another end to a mother's world
Saying that was there nothing she could do to help?
Another second, wasting breath, space. Little help
Found in the blind devotion to keys, their music.
When the entirety of your known world,
Planes, trains and old oak trees: Your life
Is crumbled beneath your feet, contained in the motion
Of her goodbye; broken records for a broken heartbeat.
She speaks romance, of doves and a pure heartbeat
Synchronizing naturally, beautifully. No help
Needed to compare and contrast the motion
Of lovers' lips; First kiss, "yes", singing to the music
Of eternity and forever. To have the life
Evoking envy in the most apathetic of our world.
But this, our existence, and what in the world?
Cycles completed in less time than a heartbeat.
Biological clocks ticking, syncopated. Life:
To recreate and procreate, photosynthetic help.
Teen blasphemy: Darwinism (5th period) and music.
CA Stardard 1-4b: Rolling a joint is a familiar motion.
There's nothing in the world to be done to help-
Body, soul, heartbeat: better judgement lost to the music.
They motion to come a little closer; the meaning of life.
