[ .pushing.echoes. ]

[ .pushing.echoes. ]

my king and cutting
are still down here
where nothing is real
nothing we are keeping
or holding out on
as its easier to put it up
all those things for granted
up against the radio skies

and those marks
that we all still have
running down our cheeks
built from the forms of memories
which are switching our faces
like pushing echoes
of your grace and giving

but I'm not hiding in this skin
no, just keeping myself
barely above your water
that's rushing to drown us down
fighting to keep my works
from brimming over
in this stirring silence
that's rising up to meet
our final counting hours
