Moons on Jupiter

Moons on Jupiter


I

Want

To get back to

Blue moons on Jupiter

And other random shit that

Just doesn’t exist

Here

I want to paint my harsh realities

Clear

Translucent

As air

And the space between the recesses of your mind

Which I’m sure you will come to find

Flips like a book

Yet

With

Incomplete sentences

I want to renew

Refine

Confuse

The fanatical

Nuances

Of your time

And underline

And put quotes around

The circumference

Of your voice

Without gravity

So the sound won’t perplex me

When you’re screaming

It will sound like a whisper

The pitter patter of little feet

Stalking cheese

In a trap

They will never out master

Because they are so caught up on

Eating cheese

That they miss all the steps in and far

Between

To make it to their destination

Trapped

And

Killed

Just like that

Leaving behind the portal

Of small heart beats

Left to wrap

For themselves

Because we all miss the point

Make survival simply survival

Like an animal

Eat shit breathe

Eat shit breathe

That’s what we call living

Missing all points in between

The point at which we view moons on Jupiter

Smell the roses, avoid the bee stings,

Decipher the clouds in the sky

And hope we see a unicorn

Dancing on a stream

While laying in mile high fresh green grass

And watching butterflies

With wings like fire pass

Eat shit breathe

Cop some cheese

It’s all about survival

-only if you please…

You have a way with words that I'm very jealous of.

I'm pretty sure the moons of Jupiter exist. Just saying. Gallileo almost got killed because he insisted they did.
