secret language

words traced on an overcast day
an artist finds meaning in drab colors
I wish more people would speak through art
obscure, interpretive
disjointed, and perfect communication
distance and differences
only seems real
when you ask the wrong questions
because
art travels on bad roads
broken by life
chalked on sidewalks
and
words are the caretaker, and the teacher
a messenger of secrecy
poor poets, are prophets
always ridiculed and misunderstood
in their time
because
at 4AM
sleep deprivation does more for
the realization of visions
than education or drugs
and
death makes rock stars of us all
