“Maybe Somebody Will Answer”

“Maybe Somebody Will Answer”

As if the drugs weren’t enough,

the animal in the garage

has eaten the leather whips

too feisty to withstand

the waves to suck the silence from you

I’ve forgotten to keep in touch

like I’d prefer a promise

but waves save the answer

become more beautiful to only you

we have no use of you any longer

there is a blue parakeet in the window

we lion you

leaf the life blood from the life flaps

preserve and preserver

for life and endless

and your lie kisses

fill of strawberry and blood

all my pain wants more

and pleasure knows

and doves

a heart to withstand anything

the cold wings of obsession are clean

for all the closed shops

and the screams

our town is nowhere

we’re asleep on a starry ship at night

drifting through a forest of ice

I’d give our shadow to everybody.
