Resolve & Reincarnate

Turn two
Horseshoes
And it comes back to me

Like it did in a past life
You told me the blade served you well
Well and down it swerved through me too
Emblems of scar etched back on the river

Don't know why it matters
But it does and the point
As it traces
Takes it all away
For a second
As in the shower
When it falls for the first time
And I'm afraid

Free as a yoko
To mirror the loss
Batter up, young kid
It's baseball season and you're down two runs
Now three

A few more marks etched on my knee
So I can kneel
Never again to look up to heaven
Never to fall into the sky below
Though my head held down
For I already know
