Unblinking Eye
Reflection of a window pane; cross the surface, cross the glass, cross my heart

Move so fast
Move that ass
The clock's hands won't stop but you will;
For the pie on the windowsill, on a warm summer day.

And you won't get up for two, cause you.....
Know your haunches will save you
Like they did the last time
And the time before that, And the time before that, And the time before that

But you're still in the same place this race
While the slower creatures are safe at home
Snug in their beds while the hare is out, wiping stars out of the sky.

Can't you see my iris bleed
Into yours as we spot the sun
Fall into each others eyes
The hare and me to hell with everyone

The hare and me go fuck you everyone
