Mox nix the confident smile

-you need a rib spreader to read the etchings on

a man’s heart

Mox nix all that bravado

-you must listen to the woeful silence between his


to see one that is lost and blind

Mox nix most of what is before you

-it covers a layer of reality you can only see

through the eyes of your soul
