miracle kilter

MIRACLE KILTER

was it not enough blanket,
or just too much feet
staring blankly into darkness
on a cold metal seat?
here I can sit and stare into my face,
the miracle kilter at a really slow pace

sleep off indecision,
walk away pain,
clear skies or dark clouds
always bleed similar rain
theres nobody here with which to switch place,
a miracle kilter at a really slow pace

sunlight falls down
now I can see
colored rose sunsets
coming for me
theres nowhere to run to, this isnt a race
just a miracle kilter at a really slow pace

light brings on shadows
reminding us all,
every time you stand up
theres a chance youll fall
here in the clear with no past to erase,
but a miracle kilter at a really slow pace
