Yet another day 5



5

No consideration or aftermath,
in color or creed, makes a difference,
can interced with the radio tonight.
... Itís a question of purging,
a seldom considered variety of hearing,
that falls on skinny roofs tonight.

Voices of a thousand lives
fall like sharp barbed-wired trains
and wine constantly turns into vinegar,
into a corroding of the message
desperation really needs tonight,
the decomposed crumbles on the floor.

A gentle gesture of a coming demise,
a fear that will amount,
a roll of the dice,
a count caught thrice
before the still born dreams
and the shaman disintegrates.

No one can claim a total here,
nor a charge of chaos
with slugs riding box cars
all across a final continent
with Jack and the gang.

Time is a corrosion and a growth,
a constant reminder of the fleeting
that slowly digs holes
where passion can dissipate
into a no more here,
no frail concepts are valid.

Any man looking at a star
is ancient,
all intentions
are.
