                                                                             we win from time to time

                                 abandoned above adaptable positions of the losing

    we risk everything in thinking we can navigate maverick of the green

                                                                                                         carry a bottle of wine into

                                                                                                         the pumpkin patch looking

                                                                                               for a new             way to

                                                                                                  angle the old songs

                                                                                                  sell me a ticket to

                                                                                                  your dance please

                                                                      I believe in the strength of poetry

                                                                        a little stone in the moth helps

                                                                               balance her on my breath
