Sympathy (The Next Time)
By our saying, things once invisible
can be captured. The time you poured alcohol
in our bathroom sink to see
if it really turned blue once alight.
We will never know how
it was done, my singed arms
hint at the outcome.
Revelation is not the wisdom of humanity,
only Gods can say the way
things are really thought.
The only true tragedy is
you cannot be undressed for centuries.
How can anyone feel sad if no tragedy is ever true?
The betrayal came before the fall.
A tree grew up long after, another’s
temptation swaying sweetly from its branches.
The universe started with a song.
A voice pitching high and soft
then low and loud and higher again.
Black holes sing this song,
sucking in light and stars, dust
and dark for the purpose of recreation.
Universes, converses, reverses. What are we
but the verses of old songs?
Satan speaks in reverses.
All those Chicago records scratching
evil into our skulls.
Somewhere in the universe a cat waits
for a song to make it visible in life or death.
Something with a bit of swing to take
the sting from a broken heart.
Spring starts with the sounds of new stars.
The bloom of new leaves on old trees,
made entirely by photosynthesis.
There is too much sunlight in the world.
The moon sometimes blushes,
hating that she is made inferior by a star.
Yet she always has a fondness for worship.
The wisdom of humanity isn’t found in love,
which is all relative anyway.
That light in the hallway creates shadows
across your body hidden under cotton.
The true tragedy is sympathy.
No one can share the fall,
but all feel the effects of the impact.
