Patterns in the psyche

here’s a close up of Jupiter sky god home of eagles

marbled air in the brain that twists and swirls

the amber toffee apple machine the candy-floss

another planet unattainable unlike home

yet we crave it crave until we have it

over and over smash and grab it

here it is safe in history lost in reality

is there peace under this atmosphere

where just one life repeats repeats repeats

a clocks steady tick patterns we make

galloping horses versus a roller coaster

this is life again this is life someone told me
