six am

An anonymous poem Six a.m. We lie, lying on these zero-slopes, lying to ourselves Unencumbered by the light that forces us to face eternal gloom, we zoom- Out of reality, leaving it a speck, horrifyingly tangible yet so far down repressed: Like a spring it will take rise, but relish as we must the intermediary time.
