we played a game to end the world
our lungs to split the sky
the sky still hung as mockingly
and unconvinced as I
as I recall it always did
since day and night were born!
with thermonuclear confidence
the stars they stung like swords

and when we rose abruptly from
siesta in a ditch
the Him that hummed around my head
grew to a frenzied pitch
my palm's panoptosaurus
gazed out through his own eye!
instructing me to weaken,
inviting me to try
O I crept back into the earth
to hide beneath a stone!
and even though I'm paranoid
at least I'm not alone

an old fat fox is rare indeed
and rarer still to meet
for one does not grow old and fat
by being widely seen


from goblin's gate, track released July 17, 2010
