The universe must be a teenage girl. So much darkness, so many stars.

I am a shipmate’s girl on a sea of corn. I have found the edge of the world. It is sleepy and unending here, and you don’t need to fear falling. The air is fragrant like poppy-scented Nyquil. I have found the edge of the world, and the phlox grows deep into the river. The wind is like candycanes. You can breathe as long and deep as you like. No guardrails, no warning, no desperation, no vice, no harsh words, no electrical wires. The feeling of beauty is so palpable; it’s like scuba-diving. Your thoughts are like bits of torn magazines. No beginning and no end. No logic or reason. You can just breathe the wind like candycanes.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]

oh this reminds me of step into a dawn cloud. it was somewhere between poem and story. at the time I hated poems s I put it in fiction. i wrote it to the reader but with me in the story. your poem is so blissful...
