Long Weekend

all this music…
takes me back to summers….

i’ve lost my way in
i’m right back to my ways
taking the train tracks away

it’s hot in this hoodie
i usually keep cuddled tight

the love in the airways
mutates into radioactive waves

woken up to the year of the cell phone
it’s how i’ve come to appreciate
the more obviously pixelated

but you can never be too sure
he packs a double lunch

just look at what they’ve done to this antique globe
from views of the sky and stars through telescopes

anything goes in this other go

i guess we’ll just laugh
when we see what comes out of all this

we’ve waited in wonder and worry
and if you’re still awake when i get home
i’ll get back to you
by returning your phone call

“does this suit fit me in here?”

i’ve pocketed this lighter since age twelve or thirteen

there’s no turning back
participating in this game of gravity

this here little poem could pass as my science project
turned in somewhere over five years late

leaving the television on
it terrifies me
hearing the mystery louder

how will i ever stop smoking
or slow down going downhill

everything’s got something to say
if attended with the inner ears to listen

i keep missing these partner/rescue/ending hallways

fresh out of structure
now, where did i set that lighter off to….

with my tear and smile for all ex-girlfriends
under the sun and wind

my movie’s over
i’ve seen the ending
i put it together
before it all unraveled

Long Weekend
