watching
from the sidewalk
'stop!'
no, don't scream
take care of
you(rself) don't know what
to do
or not to do
question you answered
a long time ago
but again
you're watching
(waiting) but really
you see the future
crystal ball in your head
glitters in the
sun shines on the sidewalk
alliteration runs slick
like blood
or syrup,
depends on when the movie was made
color TV is just another way
to keep from waking up
watching
you want to SCREAM
but not move
moving would mean you want
something
anything
do you?
ha, questions
am i not above them all?
aren't you?
so royal as you watch
the sidewalk slick with blood
from the street
all you did was watch
oh no, no
you protest
i was taking care of
my(self) instinct took over
i had to survive
but can you survive?
now that blood is on your shoes
and a bag of bones
lies where she used to be?
questions, questions
you answered them all
long before you stepped on the
sidewalk
