here is a picture of a glacier
something we know not to be true

with a mountain coming out of it
greener at the top 

usually it’s the other way around
but here

if you look into the ice hard enough
all the fossils will seem to have human faces

I know
it’s alright

the sunshine gets out through a hole in my head
you can’t see it

but it’s there
and we know what you really want

a song in the engine
there, there it is

a dictator 
of infinite benevolence
