The Rainbow Wheel

sliding down, climbing up

you learn to live in the inversion

what ese can you do?

there is nothing to grip

to pull yourself up

you just slide back down

it's a backwards world

or is it a mirror?

I don't know if there's a difference

the result is the same

it's the end of the game

point me to the elevator

I want off this merry-go-round

this clown world

this fool's paradise

and the ship of fools left long ago

stuck on red

gravity holds me down

no momentum

no friction

to propel me back up

the clock's hands are broken

like a fractured mind

stuck in a dream land

in each moment

that stretches forward and backwards

sad poetry
