Instead

it’s an endless track of ocean
trying to get over the mind
you have gained admission to try
without being so critical
you have gained admission to try
without being so critical
you have gained admission to try
without being so critical
but really, you are thinking about the thing
you told the supermarket lady
about your resolutions
you said you hope to get out more
she said you should go to China
China is playing air guitar
China is realizing how long
you’ve been playing air guitar
and for what kind of crowds
when are you seen
past the tide of each tiny space?
are you stuck there, on your island
of pattern? with its corn fields
its snake colors
imagine the island beneath your feet
imagine it quickly
                                  before it goes
