On the Edge

On the Edge

Between clouds in time lapse

A glimpse of a distant memory

Of the future

Of soldiers – wanting souvenirs

As if they were on holiday

Experiments on climate change

On the small scale

And patient despair

 

I stomp on the edge of reason

Scream into the abyss of sanity

Hard warnings

And acts of kindness

 

Perhaps we don’t know

We’re making history

In our ignorance

 

But still I have hope

For all the weird kids

 

Still I can see laughter

In your eyes

 

Why not change it

Challenge it

Disconnect from it

On all levels
