Mannequin Movements
***
Beyond words
Action resides
In the arms and in the legs
With an empty heart
Blank mind
These become no more than mannequin movements
Actions alone cannot decide
Or separate ourselves
From the beasts that crawl
Actions speak louder than words
Haven’t you heard?
The mind
Desolated. Betrayed
Fools the wandering heart into
Speaking
Before spoken to
A robbery of the intellect
Betrayal of the spirit
Torn astray and cast away
Talking. Walking. Acting.
In our own common way
Becoming no more than mannequin movements
In a cold, cruel world where
The individual traits are replaced with
Mannequin movements
