My Hole to China

It's taken me all this time
to find the silver lining on this cloud:
the sweet freedom that comes from coming
unhinged

all this time been wondering
if all this unearthing
was really just digging a hole
but the light came sifting softly through the soil
and here I find
the sweet freedom that comes from coming
up for air

and I'm right where I started
but upside-down
and inside-out
and every sign's in symbols I can't yet read
but you better believe
the sky knows just where I am
