walk on

what is the first
word
and why
is it important?

is it a tone
set in stone
stumbling
from a throne
of manic disposition

i remember the sky

under a canopy of trees
we drank beer
and fell in love
with
the music

it was the music of our time

but
we’ve spent too much
time
on slippery roads

and i can’t listen to those songs anymore

grey hairs
nightmares
foreign affairs
and infinite stares

as the last birds of summer
fly overhead

here again
we are
dead
lying
and in bed

no escape
real life isn’t like the movies
and the past is a bad penny
that just keeps turing up

so
back in the game
a little more spent
but it’s always the same

breathe
just one clever line
meant to prevent
the scent
of
blues
off kilter
i seek my muse
and the name
of something holy
