Headwind January 24, 2008

Where did we hear it first, from the radio?

Teased on the television or gathered around YouTube?

I know in good time everything will come and go

and it’s almost like flying, gleaming the cube.

Wrestling with ancestral gods, angling for advantage

when the wind bursts and whoosh! you’re off!

And it becomes one of those stories, an adage,

then its light a smoke turn your head and cough.

It isn’t like we already know, crowned with awareness

since we have to arrive at it, each in his own time

like a politician dancing with his version of fairness

that lies for a nickel when the truth pays a dime.

Believe it or not, I’ve heard your name before,

aren’t you a archetype, phenom, or neophyte?

Yes! And when it hits me you couldn’t peel me off the floor

but who would? It’s not a pretty sight.
