trying to figure it out

there is a lot of truth in that

in the moon and the stars

but what about the overpasses of baltimore

and the small tiles of carpeting that make up our living room floor


in the conflict 

and the hardships 

i guess you just have to react 

you just have to be

 

on that crooked broken couch 

in the dimly lit light

whether its here or in milwaukee

it is


and there’s something

someone else that is

feeling the same

the struggle


the urge to make sense 

out of what

is not 

really

tangible


but what you can see

is

the moment


and the moon overhead

and that contrasting urge 

to fight

whatever it is

that is obstructing
