lowborn pilots

we are the lowborn pilots
prone to
violent
touchdowns but no
ground beneath
our feet

crash landing on
islands with a
conscious in
the clouds

we are the
slow burn tyrants, kings
of our environment without
a single claim
to thrones

we came from
bones but will be the skin that
holds the mass
together

lightness of
language and a
healthy dose
of anguish in
endeavours of brawn
versus vain, cause
baby we ain’t got no
dollar worth

just schemes that
appear in
spurts

in which we’ve taken destiny in
our own hands
and ran with
it,

into snakepits of
skyscrapers

trying to finally buy
the fuck that
we don’t give.
