"Eyebeams" by Caitlin Russell (http://caitlinrussellart.com/)

Maybe I am

Maybe I am not

 

Afterall

 

We are just animals

propelled to the top

 

By bows and arrows

 

Insusceptible sons of pharaohs

 

Golden suits golden ties

Knocked senseless

by the size of our thighs

 

Rethink third drink

Lip sync eye blink
 

Walk now

No stop

Wait behind the crosswalk

 

Maybe I dig

Maybe I paint
 

We are urged by suspense

Unaware of simple restraint

 

Speak out

Double back

Light fire to barbed wire

Act fine

Punch line

Just wait for cloud nine

 

Moments always burst

at some point

 

Tick

You’re there

Tock

It’s over

 

But nature made the four leaf clover
