In a hologram
I am the man you would like me to be
but you see
it is me,
why do you want to know
who that I am?
but the man that’s an image
a man you would pillage
and keep for your own.
Pictures that grow up and slow up,then show up just who that you are
an image that’s far too inconstant
a side by the sea
aside from you and me and the oceans that we see
there is only a halogen lamp which tramps out these scenes and in the inbetweens of our dreams
I will be forever
the screens on the doors of the more that you want, and the more that we need,
the more we will seed the cameras with film.
and developed could it be
that we see so much more?
