What part shall I play?
I ask the Lord and he say there are no bad ones;
Or so I have been told – 
all to seek some lost chord struck
by all that held such ideas sacred;
for all is judgment, longing falling,
Falling down the devil’s ladder;
Oh, the last rung is a killer, if you
See it that way,
If you let the numbers hold sway,
If you count the days you spend in anger and regret;
If your fingered hopes are short extension
From the truth, the primordial ceremony of
Placement and order…out of reach.
Come, you will know them by the simple act
Of noticing. If you avert their eyes from yours
When your soul is void of longing and theirs
Are full and throbbing,
When your eyes are dry and sullen,
And theirs are ripe and  fallen;
Their hearts are filled of virtue and yours
Is but dusty and it suits you…
Leave them now,
For their time is coming,
They know it,
It has been foretold,
Take leave of all their senses,
Let their part unfold.
