September 29, 2007, Roy Stucky

Dancing card kaleidoscopes have pulled me out of line.
Changes whirl in larger worlds I wish would stay in time.
But the clock behind the altar shakes
Like it's just about to chime.
The correction God give our mistakes
Will reveal their true design.

Diagrams could only trace where I already went.
Suitcase belts are carting off my travel kit's intent.
I prepared as if the chosen race
Would be run on bricks I'd laid.
But my route has reached a stranger place
Than the one for which I paid.

The fall of flakes accumulates
Where nothing gold can stay.
The pressure builds 'til secrets snap
And lives are swept away.
The global reach of small details
Cause world events to branch.
Once it's cocked a single pull
Releases avalanche.

Hidden from the valley,
The mountains pierce the sky
Like fingers of ambition
Poke an azure giant's eye.
His tears can't stay as water
From such a bitter height.
Their restless congregation
Mourns the giant's sight.

The fall of flakes accumulates
Where nothing gold can stay.
The pressure builds 'til secrets snap
And lives are swept away.
The global reach of small details
Cause world events to branch.
Once it's cocked a single pull
Releases avalanche.

Battle scars recall a time when men believed deceit.
Slumber seeds produce a crop that only blood can eat.
Then the rock that rolls pulls every friend
That will follow down the hill.
When the truth's a wall that none defend
Then the past will learn to kill.

The fall of flakes accumulates
Where nothing gold can stay.
The pressure builds 'til secrets snap
And lives are swept away.
The global reach of small details
Cause world events to branch.
Once it's cocked a single pull
Releases avalanche.

Change comes suddenly
Like storms upon the sea
Shift a freighter's course.
Waiting in the wings,
The man who would be king,
Prays to gods of force.

The fall of flakes accumulates
Where nothing gold can stay.
The pressure builds 'til secrets snap
And lives are swept away.
The global reach of small details
Cause world events to branch.
Once it's cocked a single pull
Releases avalanche.
