Here are some eggshells
they said
Walk on them
Tiptoe around his straight lines
Tightrope edge dancing
Careful not too give too much
Or too little
Just enough to hold him in
Keep him at bay
Protect the troops
And allow them liberties
Long forgotten
On the lost highway
Cautious balance
Between caring
And novelty
Truth and illusion
And the framework
Of scars tattooed
On the Gypsy's heart
