Animals watch the circus,
humans perform their tricks,
clicks, coins, delivery slots,
forget me knots,
chained to a ship,
crashing through a storm,
worry, panic, fear, desperation,
gravity crushes heavy souls where they stand,
grinding their bones into grains of sand,
pouring them into an hour glass,
measuring their timely demise,
beady owls hooked on silent discos,
dance the night away,
