Puppet Mistress

Puppet Mistress

More sleepers

but maybe not spies

it could be that their eyes

are not used to the light.

These are the night people

the right people to do

business with.


it has to be

waiting for Friday

to set people free

I like to think I'm a link

in the chain.

It goes on until it stops

or until the penny drops

and I understand.

And winter is coming

I knew that it would,


undeniably reliable

but it's all good.

The deeper I get

the shallower my breath

sinking into an eventual


but not today


tomorrow's Friday

a stay alert and alive day

I'll be getting off at

the next stop.
