cell phone psychosis

talking loud saying nothing

why are you breathing

jogging

without meaning purpose

no mission beyond nothingness

absorbing air from the meaningful

let me fly above the living dead

let me soar

let me dream

let me soar above it all

wings spread wide

let me glide

ah, the air is fresh up here

did I make it to heaven

did I escape hell

come with me

do not be afraid

the night is young

let us fly into the moon

see the crescent

so beautiful

let us fly into the friendly sky

wings spread wide

strong and mighty

hawk. …
