Kit Kelen #648 - other worlds


648
other worlds

 


I'm in another world
was, will be

you can be too
first you must see
what I say

birds want in
but hit the glass
they know
but not enough

you followed me
didn't you?

though it's
secret from myself
this place
and build it every time

never from scratch
here, have a snout at
it won't matter
what everyone thinks

see for yourself
don't listen to me
you're in another world now
 






















 forget the drafts below


I'm in another world

648
other worlds
so far from the news
or mother calls

I know there are other worlds
in your pocket
but you can leave them be

we'll have to make this
a part of the day

the colours there
are not the same
what's strange
will not seem so

I'm in another world again
it's not the one that was
I tried to sneak off
but you followed me

towards the vanishing
you know it
now I have trouble remembering

wasn't it the rain
came with me?
wasn't the wind beginning?

birds want in
but hit the glass
they know
but not enough

you have to work for it
all new the other world
paint's fresh
where you have slapped it

and sometimes
not even knowing
you're famous there

the creatures are my pets
your friends

a sun will shine through it

you've followed me
you've come this far
you know there's no map
no way back
no signal

now you've just got
this scrap of a note 
you know
the other world needs tending

this must be why
no need to even
wish a way
when you're
already home

    the drafts below
    the other world
    needs tending
