because west it too cliché

t. williams
paranoid
director hawks
rubbing
his
nose.
It’s more realistic
living in
moments and thoughts
that keep you
looking
over your
shoulder
-the sharp limestone
caves
cndn blades trekking
up hill on
the
boundary line
crossing
the line and continuing
east
because west is
too
cliché.
Humanity is waiting
for
you,
your cottage in
the snow
globe
is tipping on the
dresser,
waiting
to
crash to the floor
so insanity
can
begin

so

you
can
escape,
rubbing your nose,
look over
your shoulder,
and
start up the cndn
limestone
at the boundary
line.
