have you ever felt

that sideways slant

where the you that you are

doesn’t match you somehow

motioning through goings

turning outside in

falling over scripts

forgetting to read

somehow all this

wrongness seems right

waiting on things falling apart

holding our breath

it might all kill us

we might survive

isn’t that existence’s punishment

forever presented with its demise

maybe it’s a ride

maybe not a game

maybe never to be won

maybe always just enjoyed

perhaps and perhaps again

forever echoing across time

what we resonate

mattering more than why

could we stop asking

the wrong questions

could we dare to try

collectively manifest a better life

celebrate different

encourage dynamic

appreciate the fact that we exist

marvel at the magnitude of bliss

such small problems

we endlessy fixate on

when faced with the boundlessness

of every expanse and beyond

can we trust, releasing

surrendering to divine flow

realizing that it’s all Ours

nurturing with grace

even on these days

when the one off is

ourselves, living a bit sideways

attempting to merge mind and matter

soul and substance

marijuana lullabies

devastatingly enchanting moments

tears of love’s vulnerable laughter
