Citizen Zero

from Sunshine Remorse by Jon Hughes



Drinking concoctions of flowers and wood;
Vacuous opinions about how the animal is cooked;
Channel the mountains through a chamber of mist;
Paying out the premium for a view of the abyss.

Oh what have I become?

Citizen zero reaps the fruits of the vine —
In ancient constellations watches memories and stars align.

I have been dealing with this sunshine remorse —
Clouded by the feelings of the days that came before.
Daylight if filtered through terrarium glass
Waiting for the moment when the moment's come to pass.

Oh what have I become?

Citizen zero feels the warm evening sun
Touching every window before falling over everyone.

And if you, only if you asked my name,
I would be here with you.


from Sunshine Remorse, released January 12, 2019
