A Poem

Sunk between the concrete lines
human turned statue
and back to statue

exhausted complaining
strung out
repeating the same fucking song
over and over

masked awareness
the fate of the smile
to go unrewarded

the rightness of any
given moment
crushed between the tools
carving away

being trapped while trying
to transcend
is just too humourous for

alive while letting go
the definition of shadow
reaches this place
