Always the Titanic

it’s not disaster
but it could be
if we don’t learn to use our eyes
not like the last one
I think it would be
a long & terribly dangerous time

oo ~ for the skin, eyes, ears & heart
for the skin, eyes, ears & heart

it’s not the plastics
it’s not the metals
not the stolen blood nor the mixed oil
it’s more skin-sized
it’s more fleshly
what I love, what my toil prays for

oo ~ for the skin, eyes, ears & heart
for the skin, eyes, ears & heart

these are the last days
it’s no secret
before the change of some kind will come
I look forward
I remember
& I’m still wrapped in my little

oo ~ skin, eyes, ears & heart
skin eyes ears & heart

it’s not disaster
but it could be...
