Go lick a rock

Go lick a rock
If you want to know
where we came from

Plant a plastic tree
if you are trying to see
where it is that we are going

Strike the match
of your usable years
and plant it in your footprint

Look right, left and right again
before running back
to the ghost of your former shadow

Let your beard grow
Kiss a boy you don’t know
And fondly remember tomorrow

Run at the waves in confidence
A dash back from the cold water,
undress your soul

Feel the sand between your teeth
leap into the infinite abyss
breathe in.
