Wide Roads and Narrow Side-walks


Wide roads and narrow side-walks,
  Lost sheep and hungry shepherd.
      
Disjointed, slurring speech patterns
                                 that drive a slice of steel
                                                    into bone.
Yes, the rainbow is shaded incorrectly.
Yes, it was always meant to be that way.
    Jangled nerves and claustrophobic bites.
              Dense tables and light brigades.  

Page down and forget
     to lighten the bravado.
                              The marching begins.
                              The marching begins.

"Sing a song of singing.
 Sing a song of surprise."
                        The vocals yelp to be
                                                     acknowledged
                                           by the strident
                                                  animals
                                                     on the roof.

We are not going to let empty typing
                             define the movies we are
                                                   aspiring to.
We are not going to drown ourselves
                               in freezing liquids
                                     manifested by
                                        the urgency
                                           of anybody's' needs.

Wide roads and narrow side-walks,
  Lost sheep and hungry shepherd.
