lyrics

hypnotized by patterns in the pumpkin vine, i
focused on the waxy foliage hoping the sun would shine.
i stumbled as i’d come to find the logs to build my lumber shrine,
sequentially placed, systemically shaping numbered lines.
gotta face the fact i can no longer simply run from time.
gotta work my bones until they’re ash inside a funneled stein.
study context with highlights & underlines, but my
undefined biography’s impossible to summarize.

and my love,
i'm next to you.

candy on the canvas, i paint blue skies & happy clouds,
i am both the tiger’s roar & cat’s meow.
loose change & two strains of headies in the dresser drawer,
noticing where feathers tore & new stains on my sweater formed.
leopards swarm the final destination of the shepherd’s course
infinite amount of steps before you on the checkers board.
so better warn your friends, the Raven’s singing nevermore
& smokejumping through the Rockies into zephyr scorched.

and my love,
i'm next to you.

& i believe;
& i believe in you;
& i believe in me;
& i believe in us;
we gotta trust.

i'm next to you.
