Hour 12: Maybe I Want it to Be

Line from Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda

“Maybe I Want it to Be”

Maybe beneath the aged weeping willow,

boughs bending in supplication to earth

I will discover a sunken hideaway


It will be buried underneath gnarled roots

which grip black soil, like old friends clinging

to one another


A secret cavernous sanctuary

to burrow safe from disease with

complex veins of hope and magic

to filter life and breath

a fantastical child’s palace that fulfills allĀ 

want —

where no one weeps

Maybe I want it to be
