6/23/14: “Hello, I’m Johnny Cash”

She walks the line,
like those before her—because you’re mine.
It’s a thin line,
no it’s 4 thin lines, maybe more:
a white line,
a blue line,
a green line, a brown, a purple, a pink.
Anything the goes up and
anything that goes down.

Its the in-between that scares her.
Its in the in-between when
people always seem to leave.
Or maybe its in the in-between when
she pushes people
away.

Because you’re mine,
she rolls up another dollar
and walks the line.
