of my reluctance anyhow;
my head's been buried in a ditch,
contented in its cloistered niche
and safe behind a woven shroud.

my eyes with magic sight somehow,
and guide me toward that daylight which

to put my life on hold—the bitch.
And once I tripped that mental switch,
enlightenment would dawn: there's nothing now
I cannot see.
