Elevator

Updated: Mar 4

steel sheet brothers close up shop

rhymes with tapping tremors

occupants wearing one reflection

the shape of things to come


steal a glance from trembling eyes

standing straight ahead in stone

we gaze but lack the lion's mane

we live in the gazelle's ear


numbers lead straight to the abyss--


tell me you saw it too

the quaking, the blinking light


this is the part where we break free

open up and catch a glimpse

the day has stopped, the earth stood still

reach out and face the living

home's not far, just one step more

ease into the crevice, reawaken

out from smoke and mirrors

transmute humanity from the terror

freedom gained from the disorder

now we wear nine eyes
