lyrics

One straight, continuous lapse – no
memory of the exit ramp, no
signs for an interchange.
A hundred maps and
not a single light to
read them by.
I left a bag of days
leaking on the counter.
Inch by inch a teardrop crawls
but never leaves the eye
and never dies.
A tiny, steady
waste of gas.

No one wants it, it’s broken.
The lotion stinks, the dark is blaring,
the fitted sheet prevails again.
There isn’t time to fix much
but it sure does go by slowly.

And the last thing that she said
before falling asleep is
in neat little piles
on the ceiling.
And I left a mosquito
dead on the wall.

Yesterday
swallowed up my head,
ripped my favorite jeans,
and still won’t let me leave the bed.

A shower wouldn’t
clean a thing.
