watch (and listen)



good morning sun, i just can’t wait
a dozen mouth fulls on my plate
i’ll chew through four, then swallow eight
i’m running late

good morning light, heard the news?
i’m dynamite, both ends a fuse
i’m blowing up in reds and blues
no time to lose

slow down

good morning fast, good morning soon
five coffees deep by ten to noon
i’m flying high, a lost balloon
in a padded room

running cold, driving blind
growing old, before my time
i scrape and claw and fall behind
then lose my mind

slow down

too much information flowing
too much anxious interest growing
too much sticky bullshit going round

too much marrow in your funny bone
too much world inside your phone
your time with friends is spent alone
like music without sound

good morning night, no time for bed
i’d just chase sheep around my head
fast asleep awake instead
the running dead

good morning moon, the day is done
the end comes soon when you run run run
embrace the tension eat your starting gun
it’s fun fun fun

slow down
