from by tomo takino



If I
could I
if I

when we were kids
it seemed so easy
the shapes of our bodies
traced a boundless horizon

why am i so fraught with terror
when i see my own ghost
haunt the empty site
i used to call my home

if i was
if i was

you don't see me
you don't see me
but I see you

closer than you've ever been
pixel by cold lifeless pixel

decompose yourself,
the boundaries between you and i
(--------------, unfold)

a million miles away
but still together
kiss me through the phone
my body is your home

i wanna feel you there
neither dead nor alive
replicate endlessly
an image as my afterlife

if i could
if i was

decompose yourself, unfold
boundaries between you and i
between you and i
decompose yourself, unfold
the boundaries between you and i
fragile like,
fragile like eggshell

decompose yourself
decompose yourself
wither away like eggshell

himself what that might mean.
