there are a million different worlds
that have been built on top of this one,  
and i know this cause they whisper through
the cracks of doors in secret
to each other -
i heard you're never more than six feet
from a rat, eight from a spider and
seventy from the sea, please, don't let
yourself drift any further out from me

(holy ghost, are you flammable?)

Haha, I love this, but my favorite part has to be: "(holy ghost, are you flammable?)"

Hahaha, the best part about this line is that it can be interpreted two ways: you can think of it as "HOLY GHOST!" like holy cow, or you can think of it as literally addressing "a holy ghost." Ahhhh, I love you oaklungs.

Again, another fantastic piece of poetry. I don't know how you can keep making these as often as you do, but I'm glad for it. Great work.

I don't get your writings... yet at the same time, in the back of my head, I do. But it refuses to come to the surface.

38/ By that logic, you could say "70 feet from the Taj Mahal"
