when the time is right
 1
the time isn't right
 2
because... illusion, or whatever
 3
or maybe just life rear'd it's head
 4
and said
 5
"get on with it".
 6
these pipes might
 7
be long and wide and big enough to fit yourself inside
 8
but they're only
 9
dreams.
 10
and wake up, wake up
 11
the alarm of one sweaty palm
 12
across delicate face
 13
is enough to jar reality
 14
out of me.
 15
 
 
the rent is due,
 16
where's your pocketbook?
 17
 
 
the tics have run down
 18
to the planck scale and
 19
I'm out of chances
 20
and running on fumes
 21
of my own internal exhaust
 22
that has no smell
 23
like carbon monoxide
 24
in the dusk I could never forget
 25
and the last thing I'd remember
 26
I'd wager.
