Keep your mouth shut, your eyes open.

Hemlock drips from pale blue painted lips,
Subtle changes to the scenery,
Blending into one,
No one noticed us collide.

Reflections show blank eyes,
Formerly a piecing blue,
Now dulled and dead,
They watch and learn, yearn.

Somewhere a bird screeches out,
A battle cry that summoned
The phoenix from it's shallow gave,
Keep your mouth shut, your eyes open.

Dependant on those who can hardly stand,
A weakened mess, your mouth is taped shut,
Unconsciousness stole you hours ago,
And you haven't yet noticed your Glasgow smile.

Take light in the darkness,
Follow my lead, if you please,
Don't, Please! Don't touch,
Just observe.

Blurred vision, shaking hands,
I look up, down, around and around,
Around and around, I spin, we spin,
Madness, we laugh, just madness.
