is

the world is not mine to conquer
the world is not mine to conquer
the world is not mine to conquer

who–you–little, white thing–
create your world and own each piece

lay the bricks and spread the mortar of a ten-mile radius of relevance,
this is the whole world–
an outpost at your childhood home to steady your bones

no
the world is big and wild and
you know close to nothing

not a problem–
no, a freeing:
you know close to nothing

this is the best gift you have ever been given
you know close to nothing

nothing of the endless extravagance and grisly depths,
not but a town between them

how will you proceed?

ownership or
open yourself?

the eternal gurgling and crackling has never been yours to tame

just to observe

the world is not mine to conquer
the world is not mine to conquer
the world is
