A City Full of Clouds





163

The world is always forgetting
How to end, life continues while it
Gets distracted by the miracle of
An octopus, a cow, by sitting
Next to the water at sunset by
Wind and dreams and the newly beaten out
Now now now.
The surgeon’s rifle and bicycle travel
Mad, unafraid, retired into some
Watery surprise really a
coincidence of seeing the arm
from the grave
the shadow of the eye
and of things yet to come.

I love the writing on this one Mike. Very immediate, but hopeful. The line with "the surgeon's rifle" was cool.
