A Secret Everybody Knows
How come the stars burn with ineffability?
Yet the underworld scorns the scrying of any world beyond the sidewalk
Kids of the damned, kids of the gutter:
Fill up your mouths with dreams and nectar by the empty light of the moon
For you are already experts of wondering
The blistering fire birthed within you rages by mistake?
No, by design
Look up and forget
Forget cool speed tipping itself on in
