Sailor Beware

from Marionettes by Clair De Lune



in the time we're given. our dumb century. we're more transparent. we're more diseased. we live and die by time. organized, civilized. the horse that won't be led. we overlooked this engine. we'll run the motors til the sun stops rising. this train won't derail. this house on a hill. a dead metaphor. it feels meaningless. this train won't be wrecked. this house is deteriorating but it won't fall down. because down inside it's waiting for. man overboard. see if i float. a look inside the cellar door. man overboard. see if i float. a distant sea. another shore. man overboard. see if i float. the best will castaway. the best will drink and drown. cradle what you can't control. would pain control. the things you hold so close. would pain control what you believe in. we'll run the motors til the sun stops rising. pave the fields until we mirror the moon. blown the way you feed. sailor beware the north star is lying. this lighthouse will not remember. the sea won't forgive until you've capsized
