Sittin’ at that old, crooked wooden table {tick-tock}
Swaying gently from the red wine {tick-tock}
Gazing into those steel cold blue eyes {tick-tock}
Rapping your dirty fingernails in time to a tune only you can hear {tick-tock}
The crinkle of concentration on your brow, like paper origami {tick-tock}
The way you flick your fire red hair behind your right ear {tick-tock}
Always your right ear {tick-tock}
The way your graveyard lips part ever so slightly {tick-tock}
And reveal those skeleton teeth {tick-tock}
The shimmering angel that furnishes your throat {tick-tock}
A stark contrast to your basement clothes {tick-tock}
Above the surreal chequered landscape {tick-tock}
Towering castles, containing the king of folk and the queen of rock {tick-tock}
Protected by faceless bishops, and fearless knights {tick-tock}
And am I only a pawn in your game? {tick-tock}
Hand hovers like a feather falling from the bright blue sky {tick-tock}
Then returns to rapping out that same secret melody {tick-tock}
As the sunlight dims, you make your move {tick-tock}
Your delicate fingers stop time…check mate
