Whereforto Ye Wanderers

Whereforto Ye Wanderers.

I've been finding life in small places,
in broken elevator door gaps,
in tiny shattered tombs,
in the spaces where our bodies don't touch,
because these are the places
where chance is always the decider,
where laughter seeps in
and our cells are torn apart and we create
again with new, flexible visions
of life the way we want it.

i've been finding life in small polaces
in the places overlooked,
in the bends of our toes,
in the spots of early sunlight
scattered across our skin
in the lines of our opened eyes
when it's hard to stay awake
but we just want to see each other breathe

ive been finding life in small places
because all of these large spaces are dead
drowned out by the sounds of this city's decay
and false revival notes,
suffocated by billboards,
and strangled by dishonesty.
ive been finding life in small places
because those little openings
are honest and unashamed
because these small places
are accidents:
unfiltered
untouched
alive
