You could have a big dipper   

one not about what it's really about & one that is by Sean Selbach


i've been eating a lot of cereal after midnight.

i guess in the morning it's after midnight cereal, too.

when does it stop being after midnight & start

being before midnight. when does it become before

midnight & will it make a difference to anyone

if we figure it out. is figuring it out just going to be

we made it all up to begin with. made it all up

to begin with something instead of nothing. which

is nothing & motion & eating cereal whenever


& when does it stop being after midnight & start

being before & when will you be home, again.

it feels like forever since you've been home, again.

nothing that feels like forever ever actually

has been. when do you stop counting & say forever.

it's always afterward if you find the right moment.

when will you be back & then when will you

be back, again & if you leave before midnight

becomes morning, were you ever here at all.
