He is walking on life's thin line

walking along the ribbon of time

a high-wire balancing of the sublime

a mental feat of the mind

 

Inching forward the narrow and straight

hoping he isn't too late

fearing that the thread might break

connecting the dots, making the date

 

Angles and points in his hands

moving ahead as fast as he can

avoiding the tight-rope traffic jam

he's the linear man
