I wanna be pure energy,
so please set me free from this ugly body and then
cut off my head to leave only pure meaning
with no underlying form.
Well, we went for a walk and wrote our name in the trees
and then conquered this world to proclaim its meaning.
But I tripped on my heels, landed flat on my knees and
skin burns and lungs still bleed.
I want to be a spark of energy.
I’ll move in through your ears and then out through your teeth.
And I’ll make you rethink all these crazy ideas like
space is preferable to time.
