I've been doing a lot of research on conspiracy theories for a year-long teaching project. This is....vaguely about that, but mostly it's a poem, so jot that down

PROMPT: The Unseen

5

you just hate not knowing
line in the sand, beach day,
the way the world can tip and bob
away from sane, yellow cocktail
sprouts wings and flies
bird of paradise 
the CIA dissolves its records
calmly, frame of reference two inches
off and you watch from the shore
as music pours from the sky
with no one, no one to tell you 
how history stretches and stretches
to meet itself

    The imagery in your poem is exquisite! I especially love the contrast between existentialism and the minute details in the present moment
