looking for the signs 
like a blind man in the street 
but I have no helper monkey 
and can barely move my feet 

barelling down the highway; 
all this traffic moves in patterns 
i have earned mad skills of dodging 
- the instinctual combatant 

the makes and models change, 
the speed and path remain the same 
as I stumble to the grass 
i laugh and cross the street again 


a glutton for something, 
a selfish, self-serving masochist 
while you torture me with destruction 
i revel in pulling every mask off this 

wrap yourself around me 
place your palms upon my chest 
and push me back into the traffic 
so I no longer have to guess
