This Road Trip

this road trip better last me forever

i can never look past my big toe
after every step that i take,
but i still manage to make sure
that the now is planned out.

this road trip better last me forever

i don’t remember anything anymore,
i hallucinate now.
i won’t say it out loud,
but the shapes and the sounds
haven’t been honest,
and you are my beacon.

this road trip will never happen

moments have gained infinite importance,
so i move slowly now.
it must be the last chapter
with writings that mean to stretch
and wring out every last bit
of WHO ARE WE
before the page turns white–
it’s alright! it’s alright,

the trip never happened.

you never saw past your big toe
and you can’t plan nows.
you knew that.
you knew it and you laughed it off.
you laughed it off
and it never happened.
