This is about Thanksgiving. No, Seriously.


it smells like dirt and yirgacheffe
and I'm wondering why i haven't left
breathing it in like the crackle
of a clove cigarette
speaking in tongues;
drowning in gin
always thank the rythym sections
telephone rings communication crackles
"are we riding with mary?"
all right
but we panic.
we're all right now
but we panic.
I'm in it for the frantic nature
worried about a girl who combs her hair
a bleeding lip and an awkward sort of stare
broken toes broken toes

As the years go by
I get stronger
carrying your ass up the stairs
A burgeoning sense of self dissatisfaction
Is this how we live?
I don't want to keep a thing from the world
But Burlington and I are having a breakup
Remember, no matter what happens

Always thank the rhythm sections

We can always make it up as we go along

She pulls up on a green laquered bicycle, I am leaning against the brickwork on a skateboard,Bracing myself upright with a cup of coffee
She tucks a long strand of brown hair behind her ear and smiles
I reach in my zippered jacket pocket for something of some consequence
and suddenly I am struck by the thought of laying in bed with the windows open and the shades drawn
not touching,
listening to Mission Of Burma and smoking a joint.
