Weightless (The Race)

from Dead Weight by Jon Hughes



Weightless (The Race)

I stand on the edge,
A diminutive form on a drugstore lens,
And I can’t speak.
And the passers implied
Through the myriad screams, through the gloom-white sky,
And they can’t speak.

Watch my float above their heads.
Watch me fall and break my legs.
Watch me three times over again.

When I’m feeling the rise,
The Napoleon baby with glittering eyes,
He sinks me.
And the Virgin Impaled
Is leveling under the Dog Wags Tail,
And they can’t speak.

Watch him turn and watch him bend.
Watch him topple over and then
Watch him three times over again.


from Dead Weight, released January 31, 2011
