They play

in alleyways


in the absence of ourselves

Like plays scripted in

dimensions surrounded

by perceptions

of perfection


Of everything we wanted to be

Before it came in

and took the the better of us

To dimensions


in alleyways


by perceptions

Of everything we weren’t

Of everything that wasn’t scripted.
