I AM HERE

 

I wish there was a time machine app that I could download to my iPhone for free right now.

I donโ€™t want to do things without thinking and without consequence.

I was raised on slow, dial-up Internetโ€”I was raised on an empty landscape.

I want to go to a yoga gathering in a forest with a bunch of earthly humans who have glow in the dark hearts, and feelings that shine right through their skin.

I am always thinking about all of our heartbeats, how they beat together.

I am trying to find that space between inhaling and exhaling.

I am not a tree and probably wonโ€™t be one in my next life.

I want to go to a rave in the sky and dance with an aurora borealis.

I want to braid wasp stingers into my hair and forget everything I thought I knew.

I want to eat magic mushrooms and trip out in the forest.

I want to lay down on some moss with wild things all around me and know that you arenโ€™t here because you hate yoga and nature.

โ€œFuck nature, I rejected nature,โ€ you say.

I want to have a revelation, so I do. I am a flower.

I want to eat berries straight from the bush and not from some stupid plastic box that I will throw in the recycling and forget to take out on tuesday night.

I will hear the recycling truck roar by in the morning when the sky has orangey-red clouds floating in it and it is that hue that always makes me think โ€˜apocabliss,โ€™ as in โ€˜apocalypse,โ€™ but not.

I am so sad and so happy that every second is a new possibility.

Would Buddha use the Internet?

I feel like a snow bank, with feelings.

Do I perceive reality or do I create it in my mind?

My ultimate reality is Twitter and dirty dishes, which kind of feel like the same thing to me.

If I wish hard enough, could I manifest some freshly-baked peanut butter cookies? Could I turn myself into a rainbow or a rich kitten? Canโ€™t I just nap in the sun? Canโ€™t I just be a rainbow already?

I make myself a coffee and kick the recycling bag very hard, but only in my head.

It is still here. I am still here.

I turn the radio on and off.

I eat some berries from a plastic container.

I notice a mirror is missing from the living room and wonder why.

Like, woa, Iโ€™m awake and oh well.

Like, hello leg.

God, it would be horrible to get your identity stolen.

Itโ€™s a shame we canโ€™t all read minds because then this poem would be over and I wouldnโ€™t need to write anything down.

Itโ€™s a shame there isnโ€™t a free mind-reader app I could download.

Oh god, nature is dead.

 


THIS POEM WAS TAKEN FROM ASHLEY OPHEIM’S FIRST COLLECTION OF POEMS I AM HERE, PUBLISHED BY METATRON.
