The great wheel turns 


Concentric circles rotate 

As pawns move 

Across the board

Knight to bishop 

Intent condemned to condition 

Wayward souls mischievously 

Glance upon the outer city 

The tide wide shut

Gazing upon something

So amazing

We took up spaces 

And tried our best to remember all the many many faces 

Lords snatch up the pieces 

That are parts 

Of the whole

Stromboli participle 

Comes like the ocean 

Sharks dream 

Of assholes who swim 

Too close to shore 

Like slaves dream of brutally

murdering the masters in their sleep 

While the breeze blows 

We sing and dream and drop 

Our guard 

Long enough to take command 

The volcano has erupted 

The women and children all went first 

The speed 

So quiet 

Trying my 

Best to not forget that
