there you go
lighting matches in the rain,
walking with two feet
that the gods gave you
because they cannot walk,

heading home as if with news
of some miraculous disaster,

counting the steps between yourself
and the clouds that disappeared
behind the grey veil of October.

thunder and lightning unfold
so close above

and you dream of a destination
somewhere in the south

where birds and stormy weather coexist.

behind you there is nothing,
running water will erase
every footprint you have left
on the dark sand of this metropolis.

before you there is distance,
enough to live your life
in a constant state of travel,

but not nearly enough signs
for you to know
where you are heading.

close your eyes
as not to be blinded
by the red lights and the yellow warnings,
those ever changing speed limits,

and open your arms
as to be looked at by the sun

that will soon peek out behind the nothingness,

ripping the veil
of the vast, unending
cobweb sky.
here's a nice piece.

Beautiful. I really enjoyed:

behind you there is nothing,
running water will erase
every footprint you have left
on the dark sand of this metropolis.


It's an absolutely lovely piece overall.

I absolutely love the verse starting with "before you there is distance" and the verse right after it.
