ings - Slaughterhouse​-​Five - 2014




I wonder about time travel 
about living my life in a line 
the arc of my intention 
the contour of my time 

I wonder about my wandering 
and who I shall meet only once 
I could move backwards towards them 
I don't have to go forward running 
------ 
Billy, I'm so sorry 
Echolalia & tears 
Billy, I'm so sorry 
I don't know what happened to your years 
------ 
Living can be lonely 
you've only got your line 
you follow it with vigor 
and sweetly, briefly, criss-cross sometimes 

There are many lives unfolding 
and nothing is left undone 
a ladybug in the amber 
a planet in the sunshine 
------ 
Billy, I'm so sorry 
Echolalia & tears 
Billy, I'm so sorry 
I don't know what happened to your years
