Abraham Jul 2
My heart does not attach
(to what it cannot have)
my mind does not ask
(what it cannot know)
my body does not shake
(beneath your hips and thighs)
God presses into this room
God presses into this room
through the spaces in the blinds.
Abraham Jul 2
When every day is like today
can't find the keys can't find the door
I wouldn't make it anyway.

Don't say you know
don't say you know
don't say you know
cos you don't know.

Can't seem to find the clothes to wear
there's not much left of '83
I can't believe that that was me.

Don't say you know
don't say you know
don't say you know
cos you don't know.
(Repeat last line)
This was a song I wrote back in art college performed with my band Chicken Chicken. Yeah, it was art college.

You taste so fine
in the morning
you go down like
coffee and sunshine
or a bird on the fence.
Abraham Jul 2
She said
wild pigs roamed the woods
so my heart bumped
and I tried not to show
how afraid the
darkening trees
or her footsteps
made me
as we descended
the hill.

In Georgetown
this sweet milk tea
contains all my joy.
Abraham Jun 30
Clouds blow the sun away.
More coffee.

I try to be here
Mostly I'm there.
The wind chime sways.
