stripped

the sixth row
simply had to go

it escaped
into the darkness
hidden in the brightness
dashed off to mission control
took off from the launchpad
the footlights went dark
the footlights went bright
back in time, it did rewind
no time to pause, there’s a game to play
it eagerly fast forwarded
into the deafening silence
just a little bit softer now
just a little bit louder now
and so it came to power

old row has been stripped
into pixie dust dipped
with beauty now is touched

let go of form and function
welcome the new era
like a cosmic conjunction

the sixth row
simply had to go
escaped
into darkness
behold the brightness
of the new highness
