Lie Awake At Night

from by Duane Starpilot



smiling faces appear before closed eyes
shot like stars down and away
the link calling me to the spirit party
unlike anything i’ve ever known

can’t you see we are to be these eyes?

i know it’s there behind a cloud of noise
but how to build a chimney to let the billows out
it seems illusive all-inclusive
to the spiral up silent spines

to the head that sits with closed eyes and attempts to wait
so show me the door so i can enter the place where i belong
the skies localized in tears and smiles

can’t you see we are to be these eyes?
