What is it I’m remembering?
I feel a black and blue
bruised right eye
cut even from bottom to top
talking to someone I don’t even know
about something I can’t
I’m becoming the wilting bloom of heartache
is it just the dark matter matching up?
an equation:

something happened. Alright?

just not to me. Not today.
I’m remembering.
what is it?
one of those wilting blooms from us
matches one from them
and if it is true, what we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves
our planet the mind
is my battled and newly bruised right eye
