Ninety Degrees

The shark tank exploded with gunpowder flame
I’m still stuck on the syllables that make up your name
I’m turning away from a death dance twin spiral
I watched as news of my demise went viral
Patched up in beats and dropping the bass
The look in my eyes when you pulled out the ace
That sent the girl reeling down the stairwell
In the abyss of a house where there’s no one to tell
And they’re all sipping gin by the fireside
Throwing briquettes to keep it alive
While I sit in a shadow the light doesn’t touch
Watch it play on eyes that only know so much
As the corner beckons for me with its walls
Wish I could right angle away as it falls
