Catch Some Wide Eye


i live one cortisone shot from a hundred
one life damned from a million
one stone age from redemption
i die one inhale from forever
one certain lie extended
one parcel off the mainstream
to be a phantom lover
making ghost tones now or never
haunted, glorious apparition
from the stallions dark and forming
foment, mourn the abolition
of a true, just, angry torrent
foaming, stitching here our only
patched and weeded superstition
hawked and sold at sole volition
of the screened and shady windows
into souls more lost than broken
