"When The Game Slows Down"


“When The Game Slows Down”

We like to talk of slowing the game down

Practiced by few and asked for by many, this is not a gift it’s a holy occurrence

The assurance is never more real

You see and feel the future

Envision multiple outcomes before they transpire

No rushing dire, a settling pace with principles to wait

Wait for the screen

Wait for the progression

But when the game slows down it stays that way

Ahead by three plays every day

A matrix of sorts, a force of patience

A flat lined fragrance, a silent doldrum

You master the laws of space and time

The game unwinds, the universe aligns

These things occur

When the game slows down
