TRACKING THE DETECTIVES
(e. fischer)

tracking the detectives, criminal dissection
hover undercover, where everything's raw
voyeur in the making, driven to inspecting
routines that bite hard

the love is real, the best part of the show
is the permission to hold, signed by a clown
a picture of a gun in a room of ones own
to make the point

they tell me they're happy, that they're off the hook
faith flock, lock step, instructions in the book
it may not seem right, but it's as good as it gets
the meek always pay, pay to be bold

it's hard to miss, the heaving chests
the cynical spiders crawling up their legs
hell's other people, or so i've been told
advice as good as gold.

resurrection fever, the hope that blinds
for the best bad things always happen at night
learning how to fish, in the can of worms
is an education, the best

they tell me they're happy, that they're off the hook
faith flock, lock step, instructions in the book
it may not seem right, but it's as good as it gets
the meek always pay, pay to be bold
