...she doesn't have a flame

your granddad left home for the circus
he was young just like me, with hope to explore
he married a girl in virginia
she could swing the trapeze;
they could sleep on the floor

your mother was born in december,
on the one sunny day that winter gave up
she had warm summer eyes that flickered like fireflies,
when she stared at the world

so why do you leave these stories unfinished,
my cheshire cat doorstop with tears in your eyes?
& why do you look when you've already found it?
& what did you find that would leave you walking by?

she was raised in a new england village
then she moved to LA with her firefly stare,
& you loved sunset strip when it sparkled
you grew up & you sparkled,
but why don't you care?

& why do you leave these stories unfinished,
my cheshire cat doorstop with tears in your eyes?
& why do you look when you've already found me?
& what did you find that would leave you walking by?

& these nights i get high just from breathing
when i lie here with you,
i'm sure that i'm real,
like that firework over the freeway
i could stay here all day,
but that's not how you feel

so why do you leave these questions unanswered?
the circus awaits & you're already gone
my cheshire cat doorstop with fear in your smile,
what makes it so easy for you to be walking by?
what did i do that you can't seem to want me?
& why do we lie here & whisper goodbyes?
where can i go that your pictures won't haunt me?
what makes it so easy for you to be walking by?
