If being
is light

and time
is a sight

hang a nail
on a wail

and come in

If circles
get square

and blinds
lose their share

hang a nail
on a wail

and come in

The smoke
is too much

that cup
has no touch

hang a nail
on a wail

and come in

Shore’s gone dry
today is a lie

hang a nail
on a wail

and come in

The Ooo

O they assumed
the kids were alright

o they believed I was just
talkin’ ’bout my generation

o they assumed
the kids were alright

O they really didn’t know
what it was to be the bad man

o they assumed
the kids were alright

o they were terrified
of a teenaged wasteland

O they assumed
the kids were alright

o it had really been too long
since they did the stroll

o they assumed
the kids were alright

O too much time had passed
since they first believed

in rock n’ roll

o they assumed
the kids were alright

o they never were
amazed at the

way it pulled
them out of time

O they assumed
the kids were alright

o it didn’t really
move much

faster than
a roller coaster

The Snipes

I am ignored
or looked past
unthought of
but succeeded

He is
place-holding or
eclipsed shunned
to a side

-|

I go racing
beyond visible
teasing out
the inevitable

-|

She finishes
unaccounted for if
misrepresented akin
to one iconic

-|

It stays
beholden inside
this minute
wandering away
