One after another
Eyes watch the run
Making clowns innocent
Of dying virtuous fun.

Paradise in the chase
Laughing fools
Complicated in theory
Simple hidden rules.

Another step forward
Four behind
Missing is everything
No way to rewind.

Laughter shaking the earth
Looks seemingly shy
Theory for all
Without intention or why.

Marching band plays
Couples slowly come
Alone at a table
All limbs numb.

So much promise once
Lost to missing time
Practice the hidden smile
Alone everything is fine.
