Get a Life

Written by: Rohan Facey

'Get a life'
arrow-words, jarring, ripping the womb
of reality.
and the entrails of possibilities gush forth
to form redemptive streams.

'Get a life'
Drill-bit words, tunnelling iron mountains
like a train given new life, like a train
given new life.
Shouted words
dashed against prior knowledge,
striking a fitting richochet.

The man in the mirror
picks himself up,
dons his courage and begins a new trek
on the trail of time.
