Heels clicking fired through tunnels
like the bucketful of nails on that roof
the lurking monster pours down,
remind me it's time to let go
surrender to the silence now, forever
leave a mark on this of all days.
Steady uptempo flow of calories
never lost but never bored
just one virtuous outcome of dedication.
They wait, we've all been waiting
though, it must be said, my worry has not waned
as we dwell once more on what must go.
One single push of a button
one drop, one step
a road opens, horizon of promises.
We may have spent our only chance
fired the one shot we had
sight is bathed in meaning
abandonment is sweet
a dark and warm home
only living skin can give.
