Neon flickered skin
Naked under floodlight sun
Cold flesh against the steel
Warmth covers, warmth covers.
When you’re alone
That can be the greatest company
Not solitude
But elegant sanctuary.
Mirror in the bathroom
Reflecting crimson truth
Reflecting you
Your time will come
Seconds into days
Wait some more
Eyes closed sight.
This story doesn’t have to end
The twist you revel in
Can be a tsunami heartbeat
A tsunami heartbeat.

This time is not your own
Face in the crowd
Blood red sentimental fool
Did someone call an ambulance?
Call an ambulance.
