i could write if there were words
large enough to fill the void
i fear the sidewalk will swallow me
and this city will never be the same
without your calloused hands guiding me
through hardships and shortcuts

i dont know where to go from here.

oh, can we get
back to the, back to the, back to the garden
where lofted heads are welcome


ideas are brewing.

sometimes i speak in tongues
and the language is reversed
and everything hits the ceiling
except my feet
which remain planted to the carpet
i reach for candle wax
and the ferns
in hopes of fixing the damage

i didnt mean those words.
i didnt say those things,
something else took over...
the ghost of someone else.

im tired and i never sleep.
i draw.
and its never good.
but i cant stop.
i cant stop my hand from making curves and lines and i wonder where its going to go.
im always taken by surprise.
but it never looks okay,
its twisted and contorted and makes me wonder why the talent had to skip me.
my father stole it all.

in the restless hours
at the days end
my mind wanders into
hallways full of
fingertips and
ripened eyes.
i follow your lead
palms pressing
onto thighs...
i sigh.

why am i awake at an absurd hour of the night?
because im watching gene simmons family jewels.
and why would i be watching this?
because im in love with nick, of course.
am i wrong in this? no? anyone else happen to think hes absolutely beautiful?
okay, i hope so.
greatness.

The Mountain Goats: San Bernadino

We got in your car and we hit the highway
Eastern sun was rising over the mountains
Yellow and blood red bits
like a kaleidoscope

And flaming swords may guard the garden of Eden
But we consulted maps from earlier days
Dead languages on our tongues
Holding on to our last hope

And the day was bright and fine
And the highway sign said, “San Bernadino welcomes you”’

I checked us into our hotel and filled the bathtub
And you got in the warm warm water
I pulled pedals from my pocket
I loved you so much just then

And it was hard but you were brave, you are splendid
And we will never be alone in this world
no matter what they say
We’re gonna be okay

We were safe inside
and our new son cried, “San Bernadino welcomes you


i love this song...
