Why I Hate The Sky


i feel rushed by the sun
and relieved on cloudy days
when i can stay inside and study
without feeling anxious

otherwise i feel compelled to chase
shadows, basically
until the shore
for sunset.

i do not understand why
in offices and public buildings
the blinds are pulled down always.

people squint and shroud their faces with their palms-
do they not realize?
time plummets
like shelves of glacial wall
speeding into terminals
of acid

the sky turns pink

for just a short time

the most amazing Hilighter colors…

relief too
is the night
which rises from behind
replacing her majesty
with fluorescent specs and sizzling,
the artificial canonization of architecture-
like psychology
or the inside of a computer. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
