Road map and compass

Don’t you know that
we all return to
Jericho?

I go back again to
watch the walls crack,
feel the pain?

But
like a film revolving around a screen
I have seen the same scene many times,
it always ends the same
the walls come tumbling down
again.

If I could digitally enhance
my life
perhaps I’d have a chance,
but
don’t you know
we all go back to
Jericho

trumpets call
I watch and fall
again.
