Work Shirt

the first saturday night of july i’m the creature from the black lagoon
lightning or gunshot
in my world it’s just the television
sugar for breakfast at lunchtime with the day on half-mute
this is movie magic
i’m the reason you keep your curtains closed
what does your face look like?

and while the sprinklers water the asphalt
i won’t be finding god in south carolina
but i’ll have sweet tea

“to the darkness”
to the end of the world

i’m leaving
the end
no show
no offering
no proof

the curtains are closed
that’s all you need to know

put away up high and safe
now i’m the one putting on a show under red lights
i’m on display floating in the blue rectangle
performing at the cutting board
climbing aboard the stage
on display with the wind inflating my shirt

the end
i’m quite well

i tried to get so much across
but there was so much more than me

i’m waiting
