Ax the moment before, let it spin through your eyes
One takes
	A piece of seconds
		bewildering himself looking ahead
		where it happens, nothing else maddens
Ax the moment after, let it let through your legs
Two take
	A piece of minutes
		filtering a breath going below
		where it happens, nothing else flattens
Where I must be, where I must be going.

The siren was thrown in your face,

You are unable to use both,
				Never recognized.

I sent the mail a long time ago,
	Did not receive it back until yesterday.
It was opened, read, and re-sealed.

		Traces of tear and blood,
Then I opened it a second time,
	Read it to myself,
		What I wrote to you a long time ago.
"Dear Death,
	I will be ready to go,
		Only when the wind stops to blow."

			to look not so much rico.
Ay...bump off the critics, and pick up the speedo.
