The Lines

Set the camera to exposure,
Set the light to burning,
Re-run the lines.
Around the worn track,
A thousand times.

Take breath beneath breathing.
Read the daily briefing
Lay the track in your mind.
And re-run the lines.

Recycle the daily briefing
Take breath beneath breathing
The lights in your eyes
Re-run your lines.

The light set to burning
The camera set to exposure
I’ve prepared the daily briefing,
I’ve re-run the lines.

Let’s meet at end
of the track in the mind.
The shutter it opens.
The light it exposes your eyes,
At least a thousand times.
You can run if you wish
Remember these lines.
