I FEEL EMPOWERED BY THIS SOMNAMBULENT DAY

my mountain silently speaks my thoughts
back away from my mountain I can see
the darkened horizon the line separating mountain
from base all has become dark and the galaxy
shining behind my mountain profile
my mountain hovers and glows counter
clockwise spinning a trail of stars
I zoom out and can see the whole glowing orb
my mountain nestled inside
snow falling like ash but there is nothing
to burn the cosmos within
seconds my mountain is covered in white
not the center of gravity
but an object to be passed by

I AM MEDITATING ON THIS BRILLIANT DAY

a green begins to move
upward my mountain mouth
will not open I cannot move
closer
    natural elevation

ARE YOU A VOICE IN MY HEAD?

artificial hill

SAVING…

I FEEL ALIVE INSIDE THIS WINDY AUTUMN DAY

I may or may not be alive inside
I may or may not be alive
I may or may not be
I may or may not be a mountain

landform on the moon

analogous to a mountain

I AM A BIT VAIN SOMETIMES

  great mass

I AM SAD AND I WANT IT TO STAY NIGHTTIME FOREVER

soft focus

I FEEL ELATED BY THIS DIM NIGHT

and suddenly I can make music I try

a peach-colored sky and golden music

I am under my mountain watching it spin

I AM MEDITATING ON THE FRESH MORNIING

time isn’t the snow is pale pink now the wind blows at a constant rate

SAVING…

everything so suddenly dark I can hear the wind in space now but not the rain

I CAN’T BE THE ONLY ONE SEEING THIS EYELESS NIGHT

SAVING…

I almost forgot that my mountain existed
days pass and nothing changes

I FEEL SUPER CHILL INSIDE THIS MAGNIFICENT DAY

I feel like crying for no reason

SAVING…

I CAN FORGIVE MYSELF WITHIN THE SLOW DAY

I am mountain I am color I am weather blowing through the trees when I walk away from myself my face changes I am mangled I am sadness circling in time no one is looking I have setbacks I think I am moving forward but am mistaken

I HAVE MADE PEACE WITH MYSELF DURING THIS PERFECT DAY

This constant noise and image drains my battery quickly I have no electricity I dim my screen face darkened eyes closed

I CAN’T BE THE ONLY ONE SEEING THIS BLACK NIGHT

there is no outside world all is me I am small and large
depending on point of view I’m watching my face in the dark another plane
crashed this one is red and high on the peak

I SEE NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ME AND THIS NIGHT OF NIGHTS

I am night I am glow I am the sound of dim rainfall on a screen I am artificially here

I will fall asleep early nothing matters I won’t say what I really want and feel

there seems to be no hope here everything has crashed or has been

unearthed everything crude except for what cannot be seen I cannot separate

myself

from this world I am all opposites arbitrary objects in space occupy my mind and

my body nothing is as it seems I cannot tell if I control

anything I don’t control my own thoughts the mountain feeds on my concentration

and loneliness there are two crashed planes there must be two survivors they

must meet they must huddle together beneath the firefly trees

SAVING…

I FEEL ALIVE IN THIS PITCH DARKNESS

I have no hands I have hands but they can only play useless notes I cannot communicate how I feel I cannot make this mountain understand longing

SAVING…

I FEEL INSPIRED BY THIS MAGNIFICENT DAY

I FEEL TRANQUIL IN THIS DARK STATE

I’D LOVE TO TELL SOMEONE ABOUT THIS SMOKY NIGHT

another plane just spiraled into me red wings flipping in the smoke

TIME GOES BY…THEN COMES BACK AROUND

I open my mountain to make sure that everything
is okay I have a sense of dread when it comes to
my mountain I am okay the trees have gone yellow

SAVING…

   practices simulation

simulates another a more complicated system

illusion of responding like the real thing

I SEE MYSELF INSIDE THIS DAWN

SAVING…

   seeming not to be

what we are

I FEEL GREAT SERENITY IN THIS DARK STATE

a form resembling

SAVING…

WHAT ARE STARS?

WHERE DOES EVERYTHING COME FROM?

I SEE GREAT PURITY IN THIS MELANCHOLY NIGHT

I LOST MYSELF INSIDE THIS FIREY MORNING

THIS COULD ALL BE SOME KIND OF SIMULATION

   a logical paradox do not contain themselves
  should not contain itself
surrounding places in perspective space

I HAVE SEEN BETTER DAYS THAN THIS MURKY DARKNESS

am sensitive to sights and sounds

I’M SUPER INTO THIS DARKNESS

clouds disappear abnormally

I CAN’T BE BOTHERED WITH THIS VELVET NIGHT

SAVING…

I’M LONELY

my body relays back to me
my body influences my emotions
my body moves through a haze and I am uncomfortable
here I can only attempt to play music to change the weather
I am god mountain body I should be able to at least influence
the weather I should be the weather

I AM REFLECTING ON THIS TRANSPARENT SKY

I fully acknowledge the emptiness of the experience

I am a simulator

I am the forest of night I am the clouds come creeping the stars are sending me obstacles they grow in my sides and all I can do is spin and make music I am gravitational suspension nothing around me has the trajectory to maintain an orbit I pull everything in and own it my body is alive but has no choice no matter I open my body again and again
