icon for hire

 

if i were alive, we would visit the sea

wait out the candyfloss violations, wait out becoming fish

with our networks cooing at the dead ones, waiting

and rocking

leaving gifts for the one who wait after

 

wishing to head off the neon M yellow scarlet dynasty

blue hollow F you are negotiate our return, locate us

wait for us

to become a following, a fresh ancient seeing

followers behind us tiny cameras on the shore

WAIT AN ANGLE, A FILTER, AN ICONIC LIVING

where fish swim/salute a sonic playback

lonely in another exclamation emoticonic mad one-by-one

empyrean heaven hire out
