all the real things in life are invisible

all the real things in life are invisible:

love, spirit, joy, dreams;

real because they last forever and cannot be

destroyed by time and wear and tear.

 

they may change and convert into other forms:

hate, pain, despair, greed;

but they do not ever disappear—

they only shift:

 

not right before your eyes,

because to the mortal eye

they are unseen—

they can only be felt.

 

and this is why they are real.

this is why they last beyond mortality,

decay, corruption, passing away.

this is why we love tiny furniture:

 

concrete objects we can manipulate while

playing god; playthings that placate before

they break, disintegrate, fall into the earth,

get swallowed up by the energies.

 

we are spirits seeking spirits, wearing masks, boots,

threads, things that give us weight, things that make us

follow them, that make us tread softly and slowly

through water and sand, through this fluid wasteland.
