I was wondering about spirit
I was wondering about the concept of spirit:
some genuine ethereal manifest
You see, I was wondering about spirit:
whether it might be some luster, or maybe a glow, a faint shine
I’m having some difficulty separating it from light.
On or off
so to speak.
I mean, I was wondering about spirit:
I”m serious, I dream sometimes, often enough to
Well you see, it’s all prolonged interactions with distant acquaintances
Strung together with an unnerving comfort found in the utter strangeness.

It’s not so much that I try not to think about it so much as I don’t.
and I don’t know if you can keep a secret but sometimes when I drive I wonder what it would be be like to veer into the other lane and let go

Your luster, glow, shine.
