note: what if truth is a mosaic, not a linear progression? some serious labels for this one.

consulting constellations:
imposed lattice of lights.
immobile monoliths, pin
points of ancient shine.
our telescopic origins. 
unescorted, a singular

invisible plots between
stars affixed with what.
directed bloodjets, one
way tickets. a rocket to
heaven. pocketing mars
in venusgreen socket.

trace aquarius. chart out
gemini. erect pretend
bridges to signify lines.
separate stars and their
imagined connection. a
rocket up to heaven. we
demand one dimension
and are given eleven.

All of it is strong, but I paid most attention here. Well-placed words. I want to rap it. I want to give it a sick beat, yo.

I can't wait until you're here.

I like 'dot', too.

awww. thanks. I gave this poem to a professor today - if his reaction is good maybe I'll start thinking more seriously about this ridiculous "abandon academics" idea...
