Karate and Karaoke

“Don’t be afraid to be torn apart

for it may lead from a dream

to a string

to the start”

The words seemed profound

or something

to him

oh how full his cup

but no deeper

did they sink

before the walls

went up

and the stage calls

for the theatricals

The script well played,

He thought he was a wave

so very light and brave

but when the cup spilled

in the reflection

he saw a particle

Smaller than a worm

riggling round a turd

he turned to a friend

and said

“Shit!

Why didn’t you say something?”

and covered his face

for years

missing the laughter

and beauty

in the question.
