In Quotes

I requested
a pair of socks
you handed me
a paradox

fixed my hopes
on a wad of gum
cleaning up
to a tidy sum

you said
(and I quote):

"resisting the urge
to conform
is just trading the herd
for the swarm"

"lying in a pool
no way to get around
ships in the shallow
tend to run aground"

well, I don't know
about all that
the thin line
is getting fat

in the dark
you'll find me
on the lighter side
of tragedy

a car driving
much too fast
in such conditions
the die was cast

plane flying
without fuel
the eye beholden
that is the rule

is it presumptuous
for me to surmise?
inside the heart
my destiny lies

on the other side
of the opposite door
whistle stops, traffic cops
and troubadours

you said
(and I quote):

"resistance is futile
fatal to your health
give away your gold
for other-worldly wealth"

"lying in a bed
of one's own making
it's only life
it's here for the taking."
