Je suis Samuel CC
Never Say Neverland
I send my twitching mind to
The neverland of neverlands
The vending machines sell
Sweet, sweet validation
I can drink ten cans and have a thirst.
I share the same space as you
I crackle like a current
A tap of my finger could power a city!
Perhaps, if all the stars align, and
I cross my arms, legs, fingers and toes
You will smile at me
And it will reach your eyes.
Nearness is enough: I dream of basking in your rays
Your presence is a punch, a tonic, a gift.
The animatronics mouths open and close
Open and close, wordlessly
You stun them into silence, as you do me
Every night in my neverland
As the clock strikes twelve
You lace your fingers through mine
And the world falls still.
