The Nose of the Firmament Leaks For You

by animalworkss

Honey dew drops
Dripped from heaven
Hardly supplement time
Lost while wishing
Upon stars that imploded
Long, long ago

What soothes inflamation
And reduces this fever
Are one and the same
Image of forever
Lodged in your throat
Refusing to dissolve

So hack away
At the hopes and dreams
Which are never reached
But always guide
Until your lungs burst forth
Clouds of mucous all over the sky

What a mess
What a mess
