- -
they are cardboard in the rain
and broken homes
that they themselves have broken,

because an eye is a dartboard
for all the electric lights
where nightfall means cozy corpses

and all the churches are burning
soon, I hope.
they are cardboard in the rain

and the temerity of hats;
they have lifetimes to forget
that no body has lived as yet
