somewhere between walking and running – 7/24/12

7/24/12 – 12/3/13 10:05am

somewhere between walking and running
(the indian not the moccasin)

somewhere between walking and running
is where his mind makes body exist
and where he’s going with all this is
nowhere fast tugging at his own wrist

but where to is more of a question
of where next he’ll go before he’ll split
it’s where he moves for moving’s sake with
nowhere in mind that’s of worth to sit

he’ll swear that it’s nothing against chairs
but wear down each and every pair’s heels
and where else could he be going but
nowhere fast with something for treadmills

beware of his body in motion
aware of wrong reasons his stays in
he’ll wear out his soles not knowing it’s
the indian not the moccasin

emergency broadcast – 7/2/12

7/2/12 1:13am & 1:02pm

emergency broadcast

even now i hear the sound of
notes up high that won’t come down
i know what it is,
but want your two cents
i’ll give you one guess after some hints

there is no whistle; no hearing test
emergency broadcast or birds nest
is it your feedback mr. swann?
no, it’s the smoke alarm; listen come on

listen come on

batteries sit there on the shelf
the alarm won’t grow legs and change them itself
i wish it would though cause I’m stuck in this head
thinking of the things that i’ll do instead

hold my breath
count the tile
catch a glance
walk the aisle

click the heels
check the time
watch ice melt
change the rhyme

pray for rain
watch my weight
stretch the truth
save the date

find the beat
reverse the curse
sign the card
finish the verse

hear the band
hum along
sound it out
learn the song
