goldfish swimming in the fishbowl are not the masters of the fishbowl

people wandering in the cemetery are not the hosts of the cemetery


trees and woods speak different languages perpetually

you in the mirror and I are in opposite directions eternally

when the moon and stars take the place of the sun

do you know what they replace

when you brush past me

do you know what we miss

retrospects saturate advents

pursuit intertwines elapses

open my hands

palm prints

are left
