prodigal sun

I find callousness at noon
desirous
of the prodigal sun

washing
my hands of understanding
and of ignorance

I call out to you

recognizing the moon
carries the seeds of our love
and

the cognition of the stars above

paper moon

the paper moon
holds light up to the pain

while we strive to make gains

out of dust, knowing
weary travels

create a refrain within my heart
looking to you

I wonder
about the stories told to me as a boy
once

fresh from the cocoon
instability, and ability choose

to come along again soon
