I run from house to thought, and keep my eyes open.

To let its world blend in.

I sleep in pre-made boats, from others, well kepts, disintegrating ones.

Some on the verge of building. Merely build sketched ones. Others.

I don’t make them own. I don’t inhale them.

I run from house to thought, leaving drawings on the wall, the way cavemen did them.

Leaving footprints in the warm sand. Some of them, I see again and others vanish.

Once grief, once pleasure.

I run from house to house, I move to keep me whole, for not the houses are what moves through time.
