16 – Unto the Gate

blinkered men on blinkered horses
cabbie flower spray dirt
unto the gate, get out
and into the grave
get yourself strong to play
trust it will remain open

the gate was a very nice gate
but over the wall and under the snow
the shoes stick, the girl runs barefoot
tote neat shimmered reflection
of her
as she fished into her pockets
for the key

of perception, there were two
but one’s come unhinged
the master waits pearly and white
holding back clouds
of the burial site
religious soundbite
lions protect the door
the American domestic
shall sing
everyday corruption

unto the gate
like a good reprobate
unto the dance
