i would rather just sleep or drown

don’t get up much anymore
keep the furnace turned off
because i would rather eat
then feel the radiating
heat

don’t call on the phone much
would rather keep to myself
ain’t got much to say
watching the wind blow
the birds out of the way
of the trees

feathers floating like feathers do
downwards and more down
until they can’t float no more
onto the brown earth
resting with ease
with the bugs on the ground

having a hard time understanding
words as they glue into phrases
from the customers and prophets
who have left me sitting here
staring out from my rotten roost

i would rather just sleep or drown

i would rather just sleep or drown
