it's very beautiful over there you'll see—

flicker of gold;our rising sea
blanket softer gently green

sun's arms hold me near
in a bed of blue flowers—
cradled fattened breasts bare.
edison's last words were: "it's very beautiful over there."

just a little progress. i feel like it's finished but then another part of me feels like it isn't.
i wrote this because i was thinking about the afterlife, how peaceful it must have been, and how better she was there as she lie in a flight of blue flowers nude. she was dying but she was dying beautifully so. i just wanted to paint a picture-- but these words are all i have.

This is lovely. There's something kind of poignant and meditative (probably not the right word, but it's the first one I thought of!) about this poem. <3

like the concept of expanding on Edison's last words ( which is something you just taught me, so thank you ) i just might feel compelled to follow in suit :D
