After the Moment

Another day by Duck River
Promenade to a fanfare
Of shakuhachi, saxophone, and dijeridoo
The emperor’s thumb has yet to turn
Rise or fall and decide my fate
I don’t care either which way
With life burning on my face
Chill can of grapefruit death in hand
I walk away from the coliseum
Or back to its bloody sands
It makes no matter
To these tired thews
As long as I have another day
Down by Duck River
