“Sun Moon Play Me”
Jay Young Gerard
Inspiration piece

By Lisa Nielsen

I keep bringing you upon myself:
tectonic plates rumbling
with turn of the century pipes and ancient tree roots.
The walls crack and the foundation erodes, now
even the deepest part of my loneliness can’t bear to be alone.

chaos is your rising sun,
the displaced are sprinkled across the sky
while you scoop up guts and entrails like spaghetti before
throwing them to the imaginary onlookers at your insignificant parade

I hopscotch over
Puddles of ooze
Insisting there must be a way
To meet in the middle
But really I’m just dreaming of a safe place to land
