Some days I fall awake,
brain like Hemingway.
Iím a cocked hammer.
Iím a drawer slammer. Oh,
would I were a blue
Wo(o)lf wading in the River Ouseó
rocked pockets drop off.

I would never desert you.
I would never desert you.

Most nights I canít fall asleep,
head too full of daydreams:
Drifting the pristine sea
of hospital sheets.
Iíd let you and slow-drip IV
Take care of me.

I could never deserve you.
I could never desert you.

But every time I open my eyes,
I see new ways I might. My black
canvas belt tied into a slipknot tight
around my ceiling pipe.
And I could try to fly,
a blackbird shot out of the sky.

I could never desert you.
I could never desert you.

Today again visit you, ICU 132.
Youíre a patent grabber,
your own backstabber. I
Make to trace the birthmark on your cheek:
bandage buried, out of reach;
cannonball my fist into my knee.

Takes me back to the edge
of Niagara, knees bent, and
still caught in the same gray dream.

When you are the waterfall
and I am the steam
rising, rising, rising.
love dead like a crushed fly

for those of you who said you'd be interested in hearing my lyrics put to music- I started work on recording an album, if you get in touch with me pm or otherwise I'd be more than happy to fill you in

**** I hope you are the best you've ever been.

This makes me sad.
