DO YOU REMEMBER

by Luke Otley

Do you remember
the soles of my feet
saluting the sky?
Do you remember
when I kicked the moon
with everything I had
when I waded through the stars
while chemicals crashed
around my brain like fragments
of a dirty bomb
when my eyes were two oval holes
in a white dinner dress
when my arms were spread in homage
my fingers limp as cobwebs
when I was so rich
the only luxury left
lay like a paid whore
in front of me
when all I had left
was an open door
out
