Rob Schackne #329 - The Precession of Simulacra: WTF

The Precession of Simulacra: WTF
                       
                       Inside my empty bottle
                       I was constructing a lighthouse
                       while all the others were making ships.

                              Charles Simic


Well hell I was a little different
while the others were making trains
I was trying to make a spaceship
theirs made it out of the station
mine just looked empty there
screw it I thought give me visions
time spreads wider with the will
plans cardinal points and principles
please get us out of this world alive
it needs more than a goddamn train
sure I'm slightly different now
ah but dreams are about the same
a bit closer to a lighthouse than a rocket
