Experiments

Rolling dice
With the universe
Thinking twice
Is such choice perverse?
Nothing here
Left to stop, reverse
Rolling dice
With the universe

Can’t control

And beseech the sky
Take me up
On such wings to fly
Don’t desert
Leave me high and dry
Let me dream
I beseech the sky

Rolling dice
With the universe
Once or twice
Cannot be rehearsed
Once begun
Cannot be reversed
Rolling dice
With the universe
