Pointyeyes - Poem by Jamie Dewyer

The challenge is to be become distant but not so far, like a star, how to be
…just enough light

From a vantage of nothing left
I’ve perceived endlessness
Into our own distress
Nothing to gain

As a perfect sphere
We erode endlessly
Crumbling, crumbling
Ashes and fame

But remember hope
She has her own throats to choke
You’ve slept all summer long
And winter has come

The grain will not grow this year
Instead reaping only fear
His hands all made of straw
Pointy eyes pointy claws

“You’ll never dream again”
She screams into the sand
Glass forms inside her hand
And we turn to stains

On the labyrinth of rock and time
Heroes of traitors minds
Bind with my skeleton
I’ve never heard of him

No one has seen his face
Stars lines get out of place
Planets align toward mars
Father I’ve killed what’s ours
