i'd like to think that I'm the sea
no shore to stop a vein and clot my flowing blood
but the jetties won't stop staring
the moon she just keeps glaring at the water

the present's closing in at last
when I'm the field at dawn and you're the breaking sun
so much for my sea faring
i guess I'll just stop caring
give us time

welkin-eyed and yearning for
the days when sober thoughts were few and far between
but the leaves won't stop their turning
the bridges they keep burning
in the tide

wanting nothing more than having
all the proper words intact to make things fine
forgive my phosphorescence
but learning all my lessons
it takes time

albert ayler couldn't figure this one out
wishing I were to take it by the prow
when it's over are all my answers right
there in the nowhere, where boats were tossed sky high
