Hang off the bridge

Meant to send you on your way to somewhere else

The reflection of the river reads blank

A rusty axis pulls you up

Seeing more down under

And in between, than at first

Flat-earthers begone

 

By a thread

The burden that sculpted itself on your shoulders unwinds and

Becomes like the snakes that leap out of the surface

 

There's more that drops out of my pockets than my shoulders could imagine

On display for a vastness that slurs along

My keys, phone, wallet and all the other possessions, once possessed by

and passed on

 

No worries,

A passenger at the station,

The metronome will guide steadily behind you

This is a phase to something else

Less primitive, less barbaric

 

New belongings will be provided

For you

 

Because...

You were meant to leave this earth

At once

Your earth, deep down

It will be something groundbreaking

 

Your earth will come anew

Let the axis swing and spin

Right, left, right, left

Up, down, up, down

 

Just got to dangle
