How easy is saying and seeing
when the hard work will come only
once you close your eyes close your mouth
one you give all that you own
all that you think counts.
How long will it take to take us
take us outtake us infinitely
out of our fuss and our definite
sorry views on the politics
Soup as strong as cabernet
bread as happy as heroin
a little sore at the end of the day
give away get away.
Neither devils nor saints
you and I are fruitflies
elephants on the long fence
dancing the long dance.
Never comfortable in a doorway
so I sever all of my ties to my troubles
take the longest footstep I never
How long will it take the recitation
over the bumps and dips and forkings
when you cannot hear the words any more
you are there.
