They play

in alleyways

decaying

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

decaying

in alleyways

surrounded

by perceptions

Of everything we weren’t

Of everything that wasn’t scripted.
