I am a song long and hollow
I sway when I close my eyes
standing on a cliff – foot slip
into an abyss
of whimsical rhetoric
I am the last tick
on a 10 step check list
recovery and redemption
my heart held in sanctuary
with a plausible view into the future
I wait for no one and stand alone
not by choice rather self preservation
in the 3rd order of the 3rd kind
going unnoticed standing still
auto rewind…and you?

By-pass generated mirrored reflection
double back ask a question
hear a song long and hollow
eyes close body swaying
foot on a cliff half slip
…into the whimsy of a rhetorical abyss
