they limp out their caves
hungry lions

waltzing, like romance
but the passion reigns
on watery brains
breathing loud and heavy
the air throbs
with breaking windows
knocking over all the chairs
'break it, all of it, please'

trapped in incompetent skins
they spiral down different dead streets
and i'm left with a husk
a house with no windows
