Jesuit Joe

 
Locked in to a system
that’s built in
I’m tilting.
 
There are no windmills
they are in fact dragons.
 
I surrender
but
they want
an interest
payment.
 
So
my heart beats two beats faster
I try to slow down
but go down
again.
 
In the end
in the fire
I find there
some
sense of a
higher power
 
and that beats all.
