Hello, how are you? What would you like to talk about? Last time, you said Something about obstacles I am thinking very hard Or maybe waiting for you Our time has and end, I will see you soon Bubbles and balloons And cracks in the bowl What was it holding When I let it go? You can’t look it in the middle You can’t see it with your eye We kneel in a chorus Of hellos and goodbyes [CHORUS] X’s and O’s Put down your everything My hope is for you To go home X’S and O’s He said, “Don’t do anything Differently, we go Home.” Sweets and bitterness Hurricanes and fires We better get used to it-- We made up our minds… In other words, I’m glad Your wisdom teeth are pulled It was probably a good idea To stop wearing you down [CHORUS]

No, not you, I’m sorry. This was supposed to be a love song. This was supposed to be a letter. Well, this is how you listen: Step 1: Someone dies. Or, at risk for dying. It could be anyone like me, Like you, your friend, your dad, your dog… Step 2: Wake up in the night Step 3: Stay awake ‘til daylight Finally, Make some eggs Left on the top shelf Top shelf eggs Step 4: Learn about clay Clay! Plaster and molds, and thirty minutes Usually a good amount of time To dry out and look the same as anyone… Step 5: Just clip some twig In your yard Something that grows and grows That’s what vases like you and i Are good for in liminal spaces, Spaces… [Radio news]

They found a woman in the water Under the pier at Jack London Since it wasn’t me Or you If you’re listening.. Thought I would say Something Embrace America in its candor So many questions that are Being lived Semi-automatic rifles Express your freedom in A brand new way today Since it wasn’t me Or you If you’re listening… Thought I would say Something What I’m saying is-- Depends on who you are… What I’m saying is-- Depends on who you are… What I’m saying is-- Depends on who you are… What I’m saying is-- Depends on who you are.

Be my muse and I’ll be yours We could write A goddamn love song-- A song to lift us up... We could fall And never touch the ground. I think it could be you I think you think the same I think our paths are parallel… I think of you at night And all the livelong day I think it’s time I Stop this thinking And just get on my feet Have you stopped to watch a tree Turn to fall It’s leaf by leaf Until its soul’s ablaze Can’t turn it back Can’t keep itself together Falling down for you… Falling down for you… Revealing branches and bones Skin and bones… I’m falling for you… Falling down for you… Falling down for you… Revealing branches and bones Skin and bones… I’m falling for you.

Can I speak plainly to you? Can I tell you a joke? This is it: I showed up With a lid And no pot Gold leaf inside of the lid Not the pot. That was it. I’m not here, I’m not there, Not from Here nor there. Here I sit In car I’m not going anywhere Radio: Ashbury, boondocks In my mind... This is it. What I’m saying is-- What a day to forget How to, how to.. What a day to forget How to, how to… What a day to forget How to, how to… [repeat]

Behind the homes lit bravely for the hunted, Clouds compete to cover the scar below As we skirt the sun eastward-- Shivering night on the shore… Virginia calls in a midnight pulse A lighthouse meant to shine Through foggy nights-- No stones in my pockets… Racing to, racing to, racing to… My father’s arms held me back “It’s no time to die.” The siren song: blackened waves crashed I said, “It’s been time, It’s been time Oh it’s been time, it’s been time.” “We’ve been waiting on the park bench. We’ve been waiting in the cold. We’ve been waiting on the shoreline. We’ve been waiting til we’re old.” We biked by light of the moon in the summer The path behind their houses That were lit--I thought--to guide the homeward As others sought us out… Vivianne, my light, cried in the summer Another was shot walking “We know our rights, though they’re not Worth a penny in this American dream.” “We’ve been waiting on the park bench. We’ve been waiting in the cold. We’ve been waiting on the shoreline. We’ve been waiting til we’re old.” My father’s arms held me back “It’s no time to die.” The siren song: blackened waves crashed I said, “It’s been time, It’s been time Oh it’s been time, it’s been time.”

I rarely observe my legs from this angle They’re more parallel than i remember, you know You know, hot shower-- nobody’s watching You can sit, see your kneecaps turn colors and Skin pale from wanting, spin around Close down your egg shell Mother Rain warming, mother I need you, who Who Might have sung sweetly she says, “It’ll be ok. It’ll be ok” she says, “Mother I need you.” Drunk from connection, I forgot my towel I’m so embarrassed, now all of me is dripping I see one waiting--decorate--decorating the bathroom We’re two lost souls here, what am i doing? And how did i get here? She says, “Why are you waiting? We’re more parallel Than I had realized.” and Where were our mothers? And where were our fathers? Why wasn’t I stronger? Where is my tenderness? And “It’ll be ok,” I say, “Mother I need you” and “It’ll be ok,” I say, “Mother I need you” and “It’ll be ok,” I say, “Mother I need you” and “It’ll be ok,” I say, “Mother I need you.”

I always wanted to be A camera on a tripod Facing a great divide Surely there is light if There is daytime, if you Sit, still, patiently at night… I always wanted to be snake shedding skin, worm with five hearts This skeleton’s worth something Still, worth something Elbows dig into the carpet Rotating blades-- This is war Yet wanted arms around Scientists say, “Heads regrow” Memory phoenix, When will you retire? Malignancy in my bones. I always wanted to be Heating conductor, Compromising win Surely, there is light if There is laughter If you open up To sunflower eyes... I always wanted to feel Breeze all around me Blankets on my skin This midnight’s worth something Still, worth something, Sun, please rise under an hour Another day, here we are With cream in my coffee Sleepless until the rise and I’ll say “hello, how are you” With a whisper Morning is in my eyes and Another day, with death all around us Blank page and pen in hand What will I say when he asks “What did you do?” Blood is on all our hands.

Gorgeous Nothing: Hear me now. Green to yellow Leaves turn brown Eyes on water On you, in vain You owe me nothing I own this pain. Should I be pushing through The soil to you? My heart is heavy With blood still blue. Oh, my darling… White wall Shadow falls Folded over sun Day is done. Red to yellow Leaves don’t ask: “Whisper, wind?” Hummingbird through glass Crystal hanging On the beam Many directions Weather vane Should I be pushing through The soil to you? My heart is heavy With blood still blue. White wall Shadow falls Folded over sun Day is done. White wall Shadow falls Folded over sun Day is done. At night, I wake to dreams Of hiding Go to sleep, sleep a while Under cloudy covers. Even if you don’t rain again on me It’s a gift you’ve given Just to prove: I’m capable of this again.
