Part of me is setting sail to stop staring at this to do list
Part of me is a panic bomb but dismantling could ruin the rest
My half-accomplished goals still need time under the non-evaluating sun

Part of me is counting days till the abiding drift is interesting again
Part of me is parting ways with distraction and looks for the fastest lane
So tired of searching for the junctions that will keep the goal unclear

I’ve wanted more, been here before, believing in an exit rather than a door, a never even score

Another city that was asking for it, saying goodbye with a straight face
Buoyancy claiming my place,
and this pond is getting claustrophobic day by day
but I’m not saying I’m a big fish I just love the taste of my leash
and I chew with my mouth and eyes open,
A soaking leash might break, the loose end might serve as an excuse
to enthuse, to move forward till the saddest part explodes!

You change your gait to levitate, the bottom’s pushing you away, right?

Gone, the surface is moving away,
my own trace is leading back home, was floating a hoax?
the surface above me provokes, was there a reason for this course?
if not, is floating underwater a door?

Was there a reason to seek more?
_for leaving through an open door?
Is there a midpoint between the seafloor
