Into the MusicI feel sick and lonely sometimes,
We all do.
But I may handle it differently
Than you two.
I listen to music
And let it take over.
It seems to give my body and soul
A whole new makeover.
The beat sinks deep within me
And destroys my fears
While the world around me
Wavers and disappears.
The lyrics are my new home,
My troubles all cease.
I stop thinking and wondering
And my mind seems to temporarily decease.
Away from my family
And obtrusive friends,
My life takes a quick but deep turn
And my heart quickly mends.
No more shouting or yelling
Just beautiful notes,
Crisp and clear.
The melody flows like a river
All soft and smooth.
Music fills my ears
Which strengthens and soothes.
I slowly release the headphones
And put my iPod away.
But the music lives on within me
Every second of every day.
dead dog julyI.
the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
Keep in Touch!
