still life




home again
that cruel ‘lectricity again
the pressure bearing down
a frozen explosion
drives you inside again
a place to hide
in crashing chords and melodies
an ode to thurman munson
two shelves of science fiction
home again
that cold incinerator
the web behind the looking glass
frustration beats like a drum again
anger comes
bloody knuckle smelling salts
and shame shoveling earth
holding up the wall
loyalty above all
never welcome
no one is ever welcome
kill yourself in quiet
and protect our world
home again
a child become a man
your children won’t ever have to hide again
you moved up and away
but still you’re home again
i’m home again
let it all fall down
