The In-Between

The pause before applause

The dial tone before the greeting

The static before the song

The stumble before the step


Neither dream nor memory

Neither awake nor asleep

Neither beginning nor end

Neither white nor black


Maybe twilight or dusk

Maybe autumn or spring

Maybe Libet’s delay

Or a phantom pain


The guide and the tormentor

Bearing both shackle and key

I am the ever in-between

And I shall be your broken bridge
