Public Gaze

I rest inside the resonance of a major fifth,
interjecting to broadcast this emergency.

It’s hollow, yknow?

This soul’s got no authority
to follow, a glaring need that waits
with fabricated urgency.

It’s a fall low, the melancholy
ushered in by autumn’s surly bunkering.

(There’s too many balls in the air
though, whistling and snapping strings,
and in cyclical futility I attempt to control the spin)

A fractured mind’s got a better chance
to find itself in mine, churning in my cerebullum,
but a mind is all you are. A brain inside a dome,
a skull encased and still in tact a couple days from home…

or at least that’s what you tell them
while hems unravel secretly, away from public gaze.

I’ll mine these minds of yours for days.
