To Move Sideways

I hide in my pearlescent husk,
a mormon
the new guy
the one who doesn't yet understand the dynamic.
my silent thoughts in self defense
and
I feel my grip on this role slipping
eeling past me
rolling onto another, were I not careful~
yet
I've got miles to keep
and promises before I sleep.
Ope thou mine eyes and mind,
prick my heart,
touch life to my dumb tongue
fluid words in their flow
(which now feels so numb, so cold!)
coax this crab oh Lord
from that small jealous shell
to discard it for another nautiloid!
