That spot in the sky, the eye can’t see.  

Head down, focused dread. Look up, asking why 

Jackpot, says the gypsy. 

Hit it big, but hit it hard, again, the spoils rot. 

Head down, for what? 

Look up, Eastern Star 

Stress facts, connect.  

Well is dry, she’s the one. 

Head down, clenched teeth, look up a dollar in zero back, ask the one, is it time? 

Head down, pondered the thought. Look up, how long we got? 

Panic seizes the town 

Flash, looking down, impact, crash, looking up, one of one. 

Honor into fear. It is again that left her null.

Patterned and pure, spec will grow, dig the bone, remind the past, again and again and again….

Will bring the end.
