Half Pipe

 

Written by   J H Martin @ A Coat for a Monkey

 

Time to go

Time to dig

 

Past the rubble 

Of dead statues

 

Past the end

Of all empire

 

What is the root

What is the cause 

 

How ancient is this

How hollow am I

 

The sky of the skin

The film of the mind

 

The layers of dirt

I drive my hands through

 

Deeper deeper

Deeper still

 

I need to touch

I need to hold

I need to feel

 

The emptiness of memory

The silence of the mountain view

 

Golden

Luminous 

Gone beyond

 

The walks with you in Paris

The nights with you in cheap rooms

The day I took your body to the fire

During the cool season

 

That morning

That change

 

It is not correct but it is right

 

This depth

This void

 

This journey far beneath
