A poem

moving forward

Sitting swaying like a wild dog

“Everything he kept saying is something it isn’t.”

Ah I’ve stepped off the curb.
and now I’m predicting
or is it remembering?

Is it John the saint
on an island?

a saint? A Saint.

But “No man is an island,
Entire of itself”

(He was a prophet.)

(He was an apostle.)

-lets run through the fields
where’s Adam? I’m Eve.
“She is me” like a twin

Kind sir
Professor
Friend

Lover of the seas and
all things beneathes

Jesus -did you know,
goes beneath goes below
to gather the keys

Did you read it?

No, that’s what they say
That’s what they say

Then there’s Dante,

Here descending down
into this centre….
[the] vast place thou
burn[s] to return.”

“his young face and his empty
mind concealed the crime”

Ahhh, I’ve spread my gums!

I’ve done not one ounce of drugs
this is me I’ve just risen above

above

above

then begged to be
next to my loves

“Always returning
Always returning”

The rush of waves a thought
is plucked
a trillion grains of sand

and so I trudge and follow
every red and wiggling strand

Going to write going to read
going to keep

-Saschia Johnson
