Checkinout (2012)

By James Moats in Asheville, NC

another year or two has made its way
past the goal tender and scored
you feel the same but know
it all has changed
while you were looking away

send the call out
to all your clever thoughts
achievements great and small
find your place

there was a time
when you held your fate
like a ladle full of possibilities
but crimson cynicism
is the brew you made

between the weather and cigarettes
it's the face of a stranger,
older version of you
looking back at you
when you're soul searching
in the bathroom mirror
don't spend too much time
checking it out
you're checking out

you're breaking up

cracking up

it's just your face
getting in your face
don't close your eyes
don't pretend to sleep
