The Instruction

Cold feet paddle down street
The weight of rain tires muscles
yesterday's scorn washed away
down and out discord
words dropped out
they fell from songs
that stopped short of pulling
guns and knives but takes lives
by cosmetic force that seeping twisted sort
that thwarting jab in the ribs
that distorted lip
that sneer - trust tumbles
time is too short
the tide is leaving
the waters are rising
the drains are about to burst
the water main screams
the city will drown
