Distant

Lyrics obstruct clarity’s confusions with each breath of spoken imagination become music

Dreams of notes unreachable for humans sing without meaning through leaves stripped from branches now bare of context.

Forests confuse complex shapes within lines never straight and wavering curves of meaninglessness

Loosely remembered pain of ended loves mingles with past lives once thought sweet praised for their bitterness

Taste nothing but tomorrows’ unforgiving slowness while apprehension consumes a lack of sensation

Listen within winds’ all but lost for images not possible without the conduit of sleep to bring them out of hibernation

Yet hear it for brief moments

When gaze settles on horizons of shimmering false presence

(Avi Sato, 2019)
