Double Take


Your convoluted logic can


Throw me


my feet.


Whisper the silence of the river

in my dreams.


But if I begin to break a promise you


Push me


the cliff.


You’re controlling the wings that guide us,

make them crash into that sea.


We’re crawling through a slit in the sky and




these lives.


But no, it’s just a soul, a few, a hundred,

miles to go, it’s the least they can do.


My shadow shivers in your wind but


The echo


me through.


A hopeless battle I’ll never win, maybe

this time you’ll come home.


Running through breezes, ecstatic, then you explode


Gives me


double take.
