Have you ever stood upon a sadness so long.
Believing unhorizons could do no wrong.
Have you ever watched a field meet a hidden glen.
That's how slowly we'll flip a switch called friend.
With no choices. Some stairs are like that.
Don't raise your hand. And don't watch your back.
There is "a ventriloquist" re-darkening our seas.
Are you nervous? Why should we be?

What do you think?
Poem one is best    Poem two is best
