Test Pattern Girl

Maybe it’s me, or perhaps it’s she Through the snow and interference Every night at the stoke of one Her ghostly image makes an appearance — She has a lonesome, disembodied tone Climbing down from my dream The sand still coating my blurry eyes At six she disappears back into the stream — She arrives … More Test Pattern Girl

Homebody

A retreat to recalibrate Getting to know me The stillness is my song Even my shadow is carefree Do not fear aloneness Embrace it openly Reconcile the musty past History is your eternity This respite is a turnabout Along an unwritten journey Breathing in the spectral day Threading together each memory I’ve wandered and lived … More Homebody
