Windshield Wipers, What Do You See?

Sing, windshield wipers

Against my bedroom window

Wipe away my dreams.

DROWING

In my thoughts

I GRASP

At the air

OUT THERE

Is a raft

FUCK YES

Here it comes–

The man

In the raft

He sees

His reflection

He holds

Out his hand

But I-

I don’t see him

I-

I stop breathing

I-

I STOP BREATHING.

The Child Who Only Knew Trust

What is the colour of the sky?

Purple.

And who told you that?

A kid in preschool.

Was that when the problem started?

Yes.

Did someone tell you that was when the problem started?

Yes, my mum. 

When do you think the problem started?

When a kid said the sky was purple in preschool. 

Okay, I’m going to try something. Do you trust me?

Of course I trust you. I trust everything. 

You have incredible judgement.

I do. 

you will only believe things using this incredible judgment. 

I will.

Now, I will ask you again. What is the colour of the sky?

It depends. But right now, the sky is blue.
