To my friend on the plate!!!

As you lay on the plate
With water streaming
Down below your stomach
And you count your life

Remember your years
And the leaves you dropped
For others to count its pieces
In the lay of your walk

Meditate on the gift of your breath
As it sneezes the thoughts
Outta you in the later end
As you gush your last

Chew on your words
As your heart stand to be chewed
By the great friends
Walking below the bridge

Light the pipe of love
In your eyes as you test
Your memories
All with meat silence

For you are stark naked
To be reborn in the burst
Of the icy sea
Would ye be born there?
Or would ye fly to the
Remnant of fireflies?
Only eyes staring from
The moon sure do know
But for you my friend
Kiss the moments left
With the last of the jewel
