Days later


Darkness has fallen on our town.
I seem to be the only one around
who has noticed the gradual change,
the subtle shift of time that hangs.
A dream last night still on my mind,
women I’ve known now lost in time.
Starting this new love feels so good,
but this doubt, don’t know if I should.

The light has failed, the night has come.
Reach into your chest and pull out your animal.
Nighttime is the right time to fall in love.

Dogs bark and fish swim.

Fourth Wall

guitars play, smoke rises and I’m not really sure
which hit I took. Was it the gooney bird
or was it the TV screen? All I really know
is that I’m high as a kite. I see some friends
a few rows down but I can’t get it together
enough to go down to them.

Music is like that, like the smell of pancakes
and wood smoke on a sunny winter morning.
An old song plays and next thing we know
we are in another place, another time.
<>
Maybe we’re in all those places at once. The
summer Dead show, the childhood kitchen,
the bad marriage, or our lovers bed. Maybe.
Limitless possibilities the mind can’t fathom.

On a morning long ago we rose together in the rain.
You’re eyes smiled and you said you loved me.
I believed you. I had no reason not to. The thing is
I loved you too. So much… I wanted you to know.
This hasn’t changed but the ‘you’ has. Sometimes
I have to stop myself to get the name right. Which
lover is this? In a sense you are all the same, all
women. There is no difference, just a name.
Now that I am older I can see how you are all just
another part of me. Why is it so good at the beginning?

I saw some birds on the wire outside as the sun set
out in Cali. I saw the clouds glowing white rising
above grey winter hills. I saw you in my mind again.
