Utopia at Sea

Utopia at Sea

A Poem by Andrew Gleeson

Serving Cosmosys' fourth exhibit "Colony":

Chart me a voyage
To an island in the sea.
I'll be alone there
On my island just for me.
I'll write my thoughts down,
figure out what I believe.

So raise a flag for me
and my utopia at sea.

I'm dropping anchor.
This is my new island home.
I'll set my house up
where the waves and thoughts can roam.
I'll find my bearings
and learn to love myself alone.

So raise a flag for me
and my utopia at sea.

I've got a lot on my mind;
so many answer I must find.
But I've got my paper,
and I've got my pen,
and I've got to find a way to redefine "sin".

So raise a flag for me
and my new cathedral by the sea.
