Trance? - Poem by W. Rod MacMasterson

I look out each day upon Dawn
Wondering what this day will spawn
Perhaps today I will see a new light,
One which I did not see last night

Like arrows from quivers sparrows fly hither
I see them fly to so elegantly to and fro,
As though they're entrapted in a Dance,
A Dance, A trance of which I do not know.

    John Strait observes the trance of the sparrow
    Props up the aim of his chamber like an arrow
    The sparrows do panic erratic, their span much bigger
    Than that creep beast of the ground yelling 'Come back here nigga! '

    The trance is gone the dream was a thief's myth
    Of he who rode a green machine to Texas' cliff
    And as plumes of angry smoke rise from the gun
    Spoken, assuredly 'Sparrow's dead; I get shit done'.
