for nevermind

dear nevermind

wherever this may

find you

now rush to see the sky

it’s painted gold

with searing strokes

like rents revealing

heaven

and that’s just

the period

of a sentence

in another page

of prologue

dear nevermind

don’t you long

to see the curtain

lift?

i can think

of lots

of pretty things

to say

or caustic words

to drive you

away

but that’s selfish

never mind it

when all i want

to want is

what you need

which is not always

what any of us

wants

strange

isn’t it

that lovely flaming

face a-waiting

behind the veil

and yet

we sit here

gathering handfuls

of dust and bits

of bones

oh nevermind

i’m not good

at the surprise

of joy

but i want

to be and

i want you

to see it too

i want you

to see it more

than me

even if that

means

you have to

look around

me

up and

beyond and

away

i’m foolish like

a stone

and just

as dense sometimes

but never mind

that

nevermind

i’ll be an iron

in the fire

and a pebble

in your shoe

daring

what you’re afraid

to do

dear nevermind

wherever this may

find you

now rush to see

the sky

let the stars

with glory

blind you
