Death Cell Blues

…got… the death cell blues…

what do I do… what do I do…

waiting… wondering…

 

… I the smashed clock…

its dial I dare not watch…

 waiting… listening…

 

each tiny sound… every footstep…

waiting… wondering…

how long now?

 

… waiting for the darkness

for my shortest day…

…my racing mind

 

… heightened imagination

waiting… wondering…

how long now?

 

any sudden trip…

but in that brief moment…

 imagining that drop to obscurity
