Halo, broken, broken, down
Halo, broken, shards of glass on the ground

The church house road leads
back to the tent.
Where the ring leader barks to an empty seat.
The muse is a Djinn,
with vapors of jasmine.
& the priests are all wooden,
roots digging,
roots pulling.
The crash of the market & the crash of the chain
As a doll stitched together,
a thousand times,
pulls the strings.
Death falls behind, until he's up ahead.
The card house folds,
Kings & Queens, trapped inside.
Rat ta tat tat.
The rat plays the march.
The sun.
The moon.
A red balloon.
