I stand on a hill

like Lucifer Overlooking Paradise

looking down on the carnival

that at best is human life in the earth

until I die a twinge will always pinch

some part of my heart

but the silver cord is over me

like a sparking streetcar cable

and it is a matter of moments...instants...

before the cord is severed

and I rise over the fairgrounds

and look down on those who'll follow me

in their own good time

standing on a disappearing hill....
