you are an iceberg in my veins
a picture in the frame
you are what winter pulled away
a view of the escape

a delicate glance from a worried eye
a mirror that doubles as a disguise
floor that moves when i'm standing still
a tight rope walk on a windowsill

you are the sun falling from the sky
a perilous trip through the needle's eye
you are a shovel that's digging graves
a grain of sand in a tidal wave

batted lashes; the devil's kiss
a semi-informed, fabricated bliss
tethered, handcuffed and left to die
always interested; always shy

marching in and out of time
we are one step out of line
and paying penance for our crimes

guarding the vault of the medicine
when no one has a prescription
left alone to his own demise
is better than left to his own devices

cannot control what we do not create
it's better to absorb than to dissipate
can't have enough yet can't let go
this garbage can has become our home

talking through tin cans on a string
crossing the ocean with broken wings
to learn the truth of vanishing
