Filler #1

3:02

The clock stops
Deafening in silence
The bells chime out but repeat unheeded
Blatant contradiction rings unheard as sustenance runs dry
Craning, oblivious necks promise vistas of burned black-on-white
The lowest point finally arrives yet
Continuity ensues

The end before the pain subsides and the lights come on.

 

One man against the World

alone
perhaps side by side we
wait
our time to impress upon
this world comes quick
it accepts us
the way we are
no mother showed greater
love
or indiff’rnce
and in her silent, sordid,
sinister cradle we wake
and then sleep
unique
