in the basement at night with headphones on

my ribcage
shaken by the bass of the music
my heart beats to the
rhythm of the music my
eyes see soundscapes of light
the floor shakes from
bass coming out of my feet
from this children come in acting dancing laughing playing
wet god hands and other side of
the earth dark
grip everything
outside seal skin powerlines
rain sweat and god tears
cover my fallen head
music makes me happy
and sorrowful at once
prayer movements tip my head
come out of self-destructive
sadness because I can’t stand the
thought of anyone I love feeling so lonesome
