Well you cant feed babies on just clouds
and unhear all unjust mouths
pretend that squares are round
but flowers are growing on tops of trees
and Greenland’s frost melts to the sea

my head was so heavy
and evidently
a Jack o Lanterns face
that’s never been carved
won’t shine very far

I slept without sound
and woke like an engine
I was surprised
to wake with such sight
a lantern’s face was glowing like stars
