one track (pennies)

ever feel
one track over

for the longest
time the tracks ran
but slowly
the layers peeled
away and now

maybe you
should have zagged
the safe bet
was to zig
but what if

does it keep
you up at night
that fucking
surefire zig
you knew
deep deep down
it screamed
a desperate wave
begging you
to zag

one track over
lost in the waves
of what if
a mythical scenario
of happily ever after
detached from
this flaming wreckage
speeding into
another catastrophe
eyes clenched
so very tight
grasping at
mirages only to
watch them as
they mockingly
fade away

do you ever
feel as if you’re
one track over

watching as fate
sets pennies
on the rail
