Any Change Is a Good Change

It’s a hard, hard thing to conceal
When you live in fear of ‘the real’
A terrible thing is to feel
When you’re a wheel within a wheel

I look in your bright blue eyes
For a moment, I’m tantalized
The pupil darts back into grey
Well what is the shade of today

Under the same old sun
The Same meaning for everyone
But there was a time when it wasn’t
The center of everything

When there were circles up in Heaven,
We were frozen by them forever
Depart from the insidious “Never”
Control our own flow together
or just vermin underneath weather

Let me taste of this world
Its sweet delights, I must unfurl 
Tantalus of Twenty-nineteen
Break this clockwork machine

Back in the Middle Ages,
The days were unbreakable cages
An eternity of rigid ruin
Stone walls and unthinkable doom

Thanks for these changes, 
Heraklitus
Thanks for bestowing 
a window inside us
