everyone's looking
at everyone else
we can't help it
the theory's good
but only in theory
the reality we practice
goes against convention
a minor part
in a major role
the point being
a spatial concern
concerning the lives
of everyone but
those who cross the line
crossing their hearts
hoping to crucify
theistic heretics
who compromise beliefs
but not lives
because there's only
One True Way
after all
convert the heathens
from Hells to Heavens
never lasting
but great
for a joke or two.

rocky road
blaming no one
ignoring the World
it's all nonsense
in the native tongue
of a single moment
unlike any others
before or behind
or subsequent to
and freely flying
in one
and out the other
