thinkin' bout four summers ago driving down quiet back roads in south jersey, i was stinking of lake water and snack bar grease listened to "September Gurls" and hoped the school year would be different, didn't wanna be a Big Star but didn't wanna be a small fry either, no oh oh oh oh didn't wanna be a weenie any more coffee at the kitchen table, you'll join me two hours later i'll be sitting in front of a blank page in my notebook been reading through modern poetry i just dont understand these images why's this beauty blocked from me? well, i know i know certain things: i know uncertainty i know every last freakin' thing 'bout hyperbole i know someone knows the weather, doesn't matter i always pack an extra sweater bad jokes make me happy :) put my laundry in the dryer two days later turn it on high and forget it, it catches on fire i want to throw the appliance out the window of my third floor apartment, but i can't lift it so i spit on it sip homemade lemonade in my dreams cause i've yet to make any not too much sugar, i like the sour and sting dump iced tea on my head in here i'm burning up, i'm unraveling kick off my shoes, come with me, we'll swim through through these sweat-stained sheets crack open another can of beans cheers to friends we've yet to meet, i'll pray they forgive my reclusive tendencies we've all got so much strange to give

i wanted to walk home from work today but it was supposed to rain so i paid 2.25 for the subway i listened to “angel gone” and “honey pot”, it was a good end to an ok day first storm of the summer i was anticipating darkening sky crash boom then candles cause each year these scenes repeat whether in a city or in the country six years ago, may 5th, you, me, our margarita lips we sat on the roof in the rain for a while first storm of the summer the first storm of the summer ooh ooh ohh first storm of the summer it didn’t come for me today

ten years of in-between ten years, i'm piecing it together over-thinking and under-drunk i read in the backseat, i'm still movin' i'm not where i wanna be but i'm open to possibilities i'm a decade plus a baker's dozen i'm water sloshing out a bucket caught in cracks, i slip into dreaming see faces, make-believe all the people i've known the places i've been they rise to meet me when i'm asleep there's so much more to see so i walk and look at the people they drink coffee and talk about their babies they don't see me so i keep on till i can't feel my feet if i ran to you would you unlock and run to me?
