it takes a long leash
to lead a giraffe
and he's only gonna go
where he wants you to go
no matter how deep your heels 
are dug
and no matter the quality of
your screams and squeals

that kind of reason just can't stand up
it falls inept
it calls you inert
regardless of whether you can hear it
or are willing to heed it
with the useful part of your head
these things, the big tickets
are tough to play with and tougher to store 

when the light is low you can see
that most of all it is shadows
and very little glitter
it is the shadows laying low
comprising the taken for granted
the figment of matter
and the weight of the place
acting like mass
