we ended up here

we ended up here, up here on these
cliffs and ledges up here on the verge
of our autumns winter The patch of grass
we grew together almost too green and lush
here where the perfect pavers interlock
perfect stone walls and it all holds the
perfect town together This american flag flying
dream. Perfect.

we survived the blizzards of winter so Now
she plants bulbs and dried out seeds she stole
from her past lives Down in the shadows of
fluorescent studio basements and the giggling
children painting fiery sunsets they never saw

we ended up here in the layers and three dimensional
backyard of towering trees creaking in the winds
and sounds of jet engines and sirens The butterfly’s
and bees hypnotize Who are we?, we ask to wake up
ghetto-less in sun drenched bed sheets Who are we?
never escaping the late night train whistles and laptop
glow.

this cage is the clusterfuck of north Jersey
twisting turning dizzying asphalt
smokestacks and steeples line the horizon of
the industrial revolution from generation to generation
factory workers walking home to hot soup a long time ago
and we now under the same sun birthing a new era
that will plant grass and flowers and stop for a moment
to watch a plane deep blue fly by overhead.

  1. Very interesting tale atrovent and ventolin nebuliser It’s mildly disappointing, too, to find another Wii U game that fails to make essential use of the GamePad. The accuracy and immediacy of the Wii remote to aim Pikmin make it far the better control scheme, with the additional screen becoming more of a handy bonus feature, allowing you to read data logs, capture photos, or watch top-down replays of the day’s activities at sundown. It does allow you to send a captain across the map without directly controlling them, a feature that becomes more useful in the time-limited missions. But otherwise it’s an advert for investing in the previous console’s controller, hardly a ringing endorsement of Wii U’s headline feature.
