Hey You

April 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

Hey you,
with your corner on truth
and your pie in the sky ideals,
got time for a question?

Where you goin’?
You and your answers.
self-assured and certain

self contained,
you’re an ecosystem to yourself
you and your pat answers
spreadin’ the word like wildfire

But your answers while true ain’t Truth.
Can you see?

Hey you,
with your corner on truth
jagged edges bleeding
all over me…

You–the one wrapped in wool
dyed crimson and blue
yeah, you

You’ve got it all, that much I see
I mean
at least
cold certainty.

Hey you, with your corner on truth
Wanna touch the rounded edges on mine?
it’s worn down, you see–worn smooth to the touch
not as sharp as it used to be

It’s not broken down
just broken in.
That’s what questions do to
truth.

Take the edge off
like a stiff drink.
