I went silent in my anger
like a rotted - out canoe
that offends not by the doing
but by what it fails to do
can't support the passenger
who keeps on right on passing by
like a plane that cannot land
because the landing strip's on fire

and I do not know this city
so it should not bear the blame
but I suspect it might be killing me
the longer that I stay
and it's delicious to admit this
what a worm this sisyphus is
like the dishes served to fishes
in a lake swollen with rain

ah, me
how did I come to be
in the deep end
I fail to see
how years of grasping thorns
has yet to harden these hands
and so I bleed...

--> [crunchy]
