When the hands swept past noon
All eyes were drawn to the two men standing in the street
Today only one of them would walk away
Capping a monumental story of conflict between two protagonists
High above, the bells chimed out, punctuated by two percussive blasts, and then dead silence
Standing in front of the mirror, he feels vulnerable
Until he starts the process of putting on his armor
It’s part the ritual and part the layers of protection.
That makes him feel invulnerable, especially with the addition of the power tie.
Soapy bubbles covering his body he dropped his soap by his feet
Leaning down to retrieve it, he took a small step.
It left him unbalanced, he reached out to stop the fall, but down he went
Pulling the shower curtain down with him
Putting him on the floor, underneath the curtain, with the shower still on
Everyone rushed to the bathroom and saw him there sprawled on the floor
Reaching for the toilet, he levered himself into a sitting position
Yielding him a standing ovation from his roommates and a ten from the Russian judge
So many people just passed her by
Like she was mentally standing still
Outside their assumptions were correct
When you stopped and listened, you realized she was lightyears ahead.
Conducting the music of her life
Olivia is quite the maestro
Never missing an up beat
Crescendoing past anything life threw at her
Everything is so legato under her masterful baton
Retarding to a stately pace when it was time to rest
The angels give her a standing ovation in her dreams
Don’t you understand how good of a price this is?
Even shipping and handling is free, so how can you pass on this?
And if you want two, well we’ll throw that second one in on us.
Let your fingers do the walking and call us now. Operators are standing by.
