I walk to school over the sunset,
But I come back on the weekends,
When it’s quiet.
The cold hand of time knows my footprints are like yours,
Their dust rime like bearded monographs,
Prepared carefully for the wasting iron of the tractor.
Every sun remembers me,
And I remember every sun,
Each unstoppable caressing every birth I can know,
The day I failed,
Which is every day,
I am freak and heretic confirmed,
But that confirmation gives me this,
My road away from all the others.
