watched, the lights          of the
city go by
(from?) my(?)
train-home, tonight made me receptive of mindfulness the
way the ocean will; humble you.
sometimes.         all the people together
on the      train sleepy from their
day all wrapped up in their
winter coats old people and young people
i love the city, i
really missed       being
surrounded by the energy i don't always feel safe
but i always feel as if there is some adventure to be had some exchange to be a part of i wished it really was the end of the world maybe just for me dying
in my sleep no legacy except for the love
i had to give
and no one to witness it i like
how the world makes.
sense to most people like just in general wake up be a person have a face have a body
eat a food
i just feel like this crazy cotton candy
of parts all
spun together in a blur i feel, burdened by the weight of.
isolated                       feeling like
i am the          solitary sentinel
bearing, witness to all things:
taking them in and loving them as
deeply, as i know how

without judgement
