johnny case (August 24,1947 / Fort Worth, Texas USA)
Carriage For Dream Words
Slumber lines sway baskets dropping omens stalking
Dark alleys into doorways of decay that flick ticks
And tocks from clocks, and slap still wristwatch hands...
Immobile stranded moment-in-time wears out the chair
In destiny's waiting room cloaked in linens discarded
By death, amorous always, plotting a tryst for each
Split second, leaving what's left further than ever with me...
