Untitled

The leaves hit the ground, not so long ago,
But the tears in the eyes can't seem to go,
We're all alone.

Now that the days grow short and the nights get long
I've been holding on for way to long and here it comes.

When the snow falls would you see me standing there
In the cold Air
When trees all hide and the summer plants die
Will you be there
When the daylight fades, in the winter, in the winter.

The frost will finish off all the last of us
And the the gears and joints in all of us will rust.
We'll be headin' down

Now that the days grow short, and the nights get long
I've been holding on for way to long here it comes:

When the snow falls would you see me standing there
In the cold Air
When trees all hide and the summer plants die
Will you be there
When the daylight fades, in the winter, in the winter.

And you'd think that I'd want something better
Then this cold frigid air that blows my way
But the funny thing is I don't remember any other better days.

Maybe It's just me
Or maybe its the cold seeping in
But I can't deny the facts
This winter has been better then the rest.



A Hollow Costume

I sit alone,
woodstove burning slow
turning this humble home
into a smokehouse.
Sipping on oak-aged scotch
and patience,
it's no wonder I've almost run dry.

It's white out, it's warm in,
temperatures rise with
the increase of crackling,
burning a mix of maple and cherry.
I refuse to turn my chair
to face towards the door, besides,
we've all been late before.

Rough hands nurturing glass
I subtly swirling my drink around
with my left, never putting it down
as I add wood to the fire.
A quick glance at my phone
to make sure I didn't miss her call.
No, I didn't miss anything... Well...

One more sip and I've run out, so I pour another;
another ghost made of balance and bones,
another reason for eyelids to fall,
and another reminder of why I had never invited her
over tonight in the first place.

It seems winter changes more than just the weather.



the wolf

aluminum outfits
reduced to alchemy
the cacophony
of absolute euphony
rings out
the night soon
in the jaws of the howl

trail markers
construct the horizon
streetlights bright
against the snow

metal flesh soft
sallow men cross the hearts
with shears
slit the stomach and arms
white hot

headlights make the shadows tall
the door scraps fall
lanterns beacon
the unconditional

windows open ears
listen to the impossible bleating
a woman crying,
the cracklehiss of tears freezing to cheeks,
they peel his forehead from the leather
and place the soaking
skin safe inside her maw

I secure the drapes
but the moon somehow brushes my face
when I dream tonight I dream of
the exhaust rising in clumps behind her legs
like blood separating from water



The beginning not the End

Another year of my life come to pass
Another full spectrum in the colour of the grass
Things have got to get better from this time
and i don't mind
February's got me on the mend

The dark nights of winter are a’closing
Sunlight’s fighting to get a hold
Yes maybe it’s still wet and windy
But I’ve got you right here so I’m not cold


February’s got me on the mend
My Friend
February’s got me on the mend


So stop thinking of where we’re at
And where we have been
Now’s the time for looking forward
To sights unseen
Summertime may still be along way away
But trust me it gets closer every day


February’s got me on the mend
My Friend
February’s the beginning not the end
