not even u 01:52
Nobody knows where you’re coming from Where you’re going Not even U Making a map for your offspring Cross it all out bit by bit Now that the leaves are down See the angles were all wrong There was a whole world when we arrived It’s so small now And dark at 4 PM I keep forgetting to exercise And to hang out And everything else On the drive down New Yorkers cut me off I guess they’ll get there first
2.
fog 01:22
Maybe the days are far too long I’m thinking about you far too much Too much to wait for another week to end Now we’re sitting close And I’m close to spilling my thoughts I wonder how close you are yourself Probably not that close Wave goodbye, I’ll see you soon The drive home is long too All the way, stars giggling Tapping like friends on my windshield Where fog’s gathering

ez pollen 02:41
Come on in, stay a week Keep your shoes off the carpet Spirit or bank account getting low Can we ignore that fact Can we ignore it On a trip, licked by dogs, in a field Does it get any better than this Pollen all bright yellow Painting us in between our toes Don’t you love that hue Feeling so alive to perhaps be covered in it Taking notes when you leave Can they be something more than that I am warmed by the glow That you left in our living room I hope you know that All the art from the walls in piles Ready to be moved All the frogs chanting “Om” Right across the way Can’t we bring them too Articles and fat novels Come on you’ll never read em Plenty of shit to leave behind Thank you for packing the memories in

You will appear endangered Caught in the crosshairs of some Motherfucker with good aim No matter the forcefield But you will emerge from that place Slush on your shoes and trembling You will retain your stuff This will be a cornfield And we’ll be just bugs, looking up

cup of air 01:55
Barking up the Wrong tree just to know what’s there Are we old dogs That sure makes you look like one Stand on hind paws Feeling pretty tall And of course it’s nice to use those legs And of course it’s nice to breathe fresh air And of course it’s nice to walk the walk Cut the contact Switch the number for a new one It’s so simple Isn’t it a bit fucked up Check for speed bumps Hate to bottom out But of course it’s nice to speed a bit And of course it’s nice to down it quick And of course it’s nice to fill up Is it empty of a cup of air

sumac 01:25
I’ll get by Wearing sandals instead of shoes Buck my teeth into the fruit So fresh and nearly everywhere The cornfield caught your eye The thicket thorn, a slice of you Sumac tangling above Well now it’s all been cut down Camera, take our time We’re too distracted not to move Slipped our feet out of the pond To vast, contorted emptiness

sure 00:58
How can you know How can you be sure about it

whose news 02:29
Each leaf Each eye Burst from exposure And the green is one of a kind Whose news Not mine The wait will destroy ya Well before the strawberries are ripe Blame it on the cold days Trying too hard Compliments and good intentions Caving in Saying goodbye when nobody’s listening Each year Think twice Write half of it down Barbecue, run around, take a hike
9.
beans 02:32
Losing my white colored things in the snow You and i pot full of beans on the stove They’re taking a while Using only Pocket of these and of those To deny Our tired teeth from the cold We’re taking the time Is the oil tank Still above 3/8ths Is the star on mount tom still lit up Keeping my Mind in the deep swimming holes This is our home While you are asleep in the loft We’re looking alive The year is over Quickly and not quick enough 2018 Slamming the door as it goes We’ll keep it in mind Trying not to forget How the colors asked When we go will you keep kicking ass
10.
Leaning like a Turrell hologram Worried like a tadpole atop a mountain The mind is stuck on Might as well fuck with it The tiny air bubbles inside melon Please don’t throw our most colorful things down the hole If you don’t see bugs You’re not looking close enough The chimney dances The painting moves again
11.
lyme 04:05
Lyme can have a month Long as I can have one too Sleeping on the job And the job sleeping on you And the job is what Laughing on the lawn But the joke is unspoken Try not to stay too long Try not to leave too soon Til the job is done Come back in the morning There’ll be more time There’s always more time I am on the clock With my spine elongated Recording rain drops Focusing on the breath What to make for lunch These are choppy times Why am I chopping veggies Already August 1 Better find something to do Better find it soon By this time tomorrow morning There’ll be less time There is no time Better find it now
