when you
when you go the distance
feel the light's resistance
to your eyes.

bright lights
bright lights in winter
split the ice to splinters
of sunrise.

but don't you
don't you be so naive
don't be the one to believe
there's any surprise

at the end of this distance
there's no pill or assistance
or blue skies.

it's always
the tether and the taper -
we change nothing but the paper
on which we begin.

and they say trees,
trees are our lungs.
but in the shadow of the sun
trees breathe in.

they're waiting,
waiting to be book bound
waiting to be word found
waiting to begin.

so when you
when you see a shadow
like Harry Lime at your window
go to him.

and as we walked out, down by the water
our lives were more than money bricks and mortar
paper bullets to the head - bang son, bang
and you're dead.
