Shuffle now accordingly off to bed you go,
you asked so long ago to change the cards
I dealt you; but God responded with stagger in the void…this was all foretold,
This was all a scheming pattern new; a dream was
All you had…like concrete hard untrue; crack it with the
Sky, hold it in your trembling sweaty hands,
this timing now is due,
Brother, that is what
I call you, all equal parts
Desire and sweat and sinew,
for all is young but old this way: You stepped from a car, a
child – the stars danced
In disarray, yet the space
set so finely between those facets
Held every dream in place;
such beauty darts a flush red
scheme tonight across your face;
what bounty held between the brightness in your eyes?
Shuffle now, no bother for the mourning;
Ruthless is the Devil, but clueless are
his keepers here among us; they are clever
present, they are all in a heap
Beneath your bed – Shhhh!
Sleep tight oh Brother, sleep tight.
