SnowblindThe moonlit sky has shrunk away to little more than a blackened husk, greyed with the bobbing clouds of a coming storm. Yet, I am undeterred as I tromp, step by step, beat by beat, through the icy snow, it burning through the gaping holes in my tattered running shoes. I need to be gone. I need to disappear into the night. Looking back against my own judgement, I still see the lights, and faintly hear the music, pounding away at a constant, repetitive bassline. A single image trounces all others in my mind, though. A single balloon, an elliptical red star shimmering with a metallic film, has been released and is flying far above the beat of the drum, and the twisted mass of bodies crushing the snow with their desperate feet and hopeless hearts. Lucky, that one, I think. What I wouldn't do to float up above all of this, to transcend this primitive ritual. My nose twitches in response to the bitter cold, and I can't help but agree.

Vermin crawling, for nothing but fortune and fame
Are we all just one and another?
Grabbing the world, taking all to smother

The clock is ticking, it's soon to count down
All too soon.

Or will you eat what you're fed?
Will you protect those you love?
Will you stand up to the darkness, make the world better?
Or will you stand idly by in your luminous globe of ignorance?
Will you rise above?
Will you end the chaos, will it away?
Or will you facilitate it, by letting it stay?

The harsh veil of rain
That yet loosens one mind
Slowly relieving ones pain
In a way so soothing
Yet some never feel
The healing powers of rain
Some yearn for the sun,
Warm on their back
To feel true bliss incarnate
Listen closely to the rain
For it will guide you to freedom.

Each one an earthbound soul
Drenched in suffering shame
With newfound unbirth dragging along the way
To strengthen the ties that bind in chains
The leash of gravity, taken away
Working backwards, moving twice
Running circles, blind mice
Trillion stars, billion born
Hundreds, thousands, millions more.
50, a 10, maybe a five or some.
But in the end
There's only one.
