There are no roads to this place.
There are no sentences leaving this place.
There are no moons in this place
Even though it might look like it.
I express my love for this place.
I express my love for this place
With my eyes looking down.
A book and a mouth told me.
Yes, a book and a mouth told me
To look up instead of down. But I look
Down in shame. Ears open, ashamed.
Looking down in shame into the
Core of the earth, the core of the earth,
White disks dug into the core of the earth;
I love these disks dug into the core
Of the earth, into this core of my earth.
