Do I?

What happens when the glass is broken?

What happens when the glass is broken?

Do alarms sound with the shards hitting the floor?

Do alarms sound with the shards hitting the floor?

When the alarm is broken, what happens?

Do the glass shards sound hitting the floor?

Antique ancient vintage alert system

Antique ancient vintage alert system

Speaks to bygone days before digital whistles and whines

Speaks to bygone days before digital whistles and whines

Ancient, antique, vintage system speaks to before

Digital whistles and whines alert to bygone days.

There is only one way to find out what will happen.

There is only one way to find out what will happen.

Eyes squinting, shoulders hunched, body flinching, hands raised, do I do it?

Eyes squinting, shoulders hunched, body flinching, hands raised, do I do it?

Shoulders, eyes, hands, body find out what will happen

There is only one way I do it – flinching, squinting, raised, hunched.

*

Shoulders hunched – to the ancient bygone days

Eyes squinting – the antique shards hitting the floor

Body flinching – when the broken glass sound happens

Hands raised – before vintage alert system

Alarm speaks – digital whines and whistles, there is only one way

Find out what will happen, when I do it. What to do?
