Poem Written After Reading a Nicolas Cage Interview. by Colin James

So far we have traded nothing.
Behind the visions is a blind spot
where flight is not a consideration.
Simply approach slowly,
throw the box over the fat mouse.
Punctuality has nothing to do with it.
There are no waitresses left serving
having all legged it at the first touch.
