hello black cat

they’ll be leaving soon, a voice whispered as secret
through silken hair, golden from summer, lips to ear

the shutter shudders
skin rises to meet something soft
wraps a shadow shawl around us, a bag over the head

this is when eyes open widest, the awe is spectacular, don’t you see?

she heard, where were you, did you get lost? you look like you could be lost
frighteningly searching for the perfect song, what did you say, i have to go

i found it for now, but that will change
my thoughts are spotted with the cancer of nostalgia
the sharpest edges and thickest skin have the most gooey core
you shouldn’t monkey around with that stuff, but i am a soul miner
(thank you matt johnson)

today’s not the day for me to salvage your fine pieces and polish them shiny

they’ll put you on the proper medicine, darling
and then you’ll be hidden safely in the confines of sanity

“Take all your medicine
It’s gonna make you well
You’ll have to run till it’s over
I’m sure you’ll be able to tell
You’ll know it’s over
For the rest of your life
You’re gonna be high
Come home
It’s something less than a holiday
When you come home
It’s something less than a holiday
They’ll be sneaking up behind you again
Talk to the doctor
He said you’re well for home
Take all your medicine
Be sure you’re never alone
You’ll know it’s over
For the rest of your life
You’re gonna be high…
Come home
It’s something less than a holiday
When you come home
It’s something less than a holiday
They’ll be sneaking up behind you again

Come home
It’s something less than a holiday
When you come home
It’s something less than a holiday
When you come home
It’s something less than a holiday
When you come home
It’s something less than a holiday
When you come home
It’s something less than a holiday
When you…”
