inspired by the PKD novel "martian time slip"


in some cave
i confuse reality
with some vision
with some prophecy
a child's mind
wrapped into itself
doubled over in pain
in thought intense

and time, slows
my thoughts stand still
for that child
time slows

life was good
you've heard me say
there was good
plenty of everything
but there is this boy
welded to my eyes
pushed himself to some
misery for all our lives

and time slows
thoughts stand still
that child knows
that time slows
