Winter Means

Summer soil stinking juice runs down our cheeks insects winking tracing lines above us give us honey nectar love us love us

Sunlight hugs us warm rest loves us warmth abounds outside sounds like children playing cops and robbers in dying light they’ll be alright

Winter soil stark and empty drains our feet our hands our bellies don’t lie down in death knell winter hurry past pull fast won’t last

Robbers at the windows close them lock them shun them block them cower cover hide in night time towers hold them tight we’ll be alright

Leave Me Be

Take roses and satin
Take rings and vows
Take Pachelbel’s Canon
Fire the fucking thing into the sea

It’s not me, love
I’m frigid and thistles
I’m unbearable
Summers and too long winters

Take ribbons and flowers
Take maidens in towers
Take kittens and loofahs away from me

But if you see
Lipstick on his collar
If your stomach drops ten feet
Pick up the phone
I’m always at home
Pick up the phone and call me

Shaking Hands

You have to come! Sit next to me!
You’ll be alright! Just wait and see!
Once you sit down it’ll be okay!
Everyone here likes you!
Stay stay stay!

Lady

She says “I don’t know why people take risks”
I think “Lady, why’d you come here?”
She says “I don’t know why people get fat”
I think “Problems, clearly that you never had”
She says “People make mistakes, they just don’t know”
I think “I made one today and it’s starting to show”
