All This Wonder

Faster, out of time

Pulling along on the rope

this infinite struggle

Blurring, out of focus

As we are slowly and surely

crushed under its heel

Stretch farther, out of reach

We should hang our heads in shame

(and maybe even each other)

Look in the direction

of the spotlight as it ends

Merrily, as we swing

from the end of these ropes
