the ultimate question


footsteps creep on bubblegum stained concrete
darkness pushes light to the side
observers of the night prepare
six cities arm for battle
but nothing will happen tonight
packs of wolves take inventory
they spread through streets tunnels rooftops
the opposition does the same
they divide the chess board
staking out squares
anticipating valuable real estate
paths cross
they know not to engage
a tight rope of nerves play violin strings
releasing calming tense energy
the walker flows between the future combatants
makes his notes in his books
anticipates the new order

between the madness
a cigarette burns
