Cosmic Surrealism

Cosmic Surrealism

A Poem by Salem Fitzgerald
"

Someone who can't accept reality writes as if she's in control of the stars. Everything is "perfect." This is cosmic surrealism.

"

and if all the stars could shift their shine

a trillion on me just this one time

then I could make the wish of all wishes


what's meant to be and what is not 

are always aligned at the perfect spot

but I could feel it change when the gravity shifted


effort appeared, apathy withdrew

and someone writing a song for you

became enough to validate my existence


and on this one night, everything still

my wish granted, your perspective new

we rewrote the fate that didn't please us

This is a gorgeous dream! All writers wish this, for our realities (or surrealities) to come to life and be made real-life--I know I do, every moment of every day. I especially like the part of "we rewrote the fate that didn't please us" Gives turning back the hands of time a whole different outlook.

This is perfect, I love surrealism. Sometimes this life is surreal.
