she is a happy ending,
not everyone can wait for.

you know me, I play
pianos just where I find them
and smile at my zeal

When you've done it all
Everything you said
When your book is full
Of the things you read

When you've seen it all
And know it's not
The thing you spoke
And said it was

But your heart still aches
And your mind still burns
For loves sweet straits
And twisting turns

When midnight comes
Without a stroke
And the streets are cold
And life's a joke

When the river dries
And the bed is stones
And the rain never comes
Despite the clouds

Remember me
Recall the song
I was here
And you were gone
I met a genius on the train
today
about 6 years old,
he sat beside me
and as the train
ran down along the coast
we came to the ocean
and then he looked at me
and said,
it's not pretty.

it was the first time I'd
realized
that.

I thought to myself
"Oh, the places I could be!"
And the Lord said,
"Behold, there is a place by me…"

Exodus 33:21

It is tomorrow as I stray solitary
and walk myself awake, standing
on the grass that grows the greenest
on this here higher side
where the moon sleeps in the shadows
above your mud-cloaked body.

My bare feet ***** down the flora
that grows hopeful from your skin
and up I turn, looking for comfort
in a bare and barren sky

where even the brightest stars,
those thousand sharpened shards
of brittle glass glimmering,
fade too into blackness

as here, cloaked in this shining dark,
I am reminded
that the full fury of the sun rests so still now,
held blind beneath my weary feet.

and those grays, which chafe at dry skin
between intermittent

bursting, brief songs of sunshine
subtle shifts in the light, faces tipped up,
graced in its presence for too short a time

to lift a smile, although I

                                                          try.
