And in the only manoeuvre known to us

the steps seem limp and lifeless

for some they are full of purpose

but for most they are darkly lit


cut from cardboard and numbered

to guide the unwilling feet

lonely in their pursuit of peace

to have the choice

to elect

to not have to lead at all

simply to have the peace of mind to

be able to follow or

even just to stand still

and quiet momentarily

and listen to the music

the beautiful music
