The down time

The down time is a bear trap that floats around
And try as you may to chart its courses or calculate its velocity based on nutrition or the weather
in the end it will always play you for the fool
                         if you were right
That is part of the power
                        of the down time

You may not know exactly when it leaves
but you won’t have to guess
about the arrival of the down time
when its sharp jaws mash your heart and head  together in a bloody hemorrhage
to signal the beginning of the long dull tics
The tics that mark the passing of the down time
