reaching for the stars
lily of the death valley
heads to light through the wire-


elevators are needless now

business cards senseless
the air’s getting thinner
for tigers and turtles too thick
and too thick to get out
of their think tanks

grasping it
from the height of times
there must be uplifting words
to fall into colourful sounds
of touching things yet unsaid
