Time & time again,
verily your friends will disappoint you,
like cats walking on your keyboard.
We are teams of children playing war
with cardboard swords. On metal wings,
flying between these bolts of lightning,
were she a bird, it would be of prey.
Were she your pet, it would be a stray.
I am. I am.

Time & time again,
if you play fifty-two card pickup
with other people’s feelings, you’ll stop
getting asked to do the dealing.
Still, it’s the same old song and dance,
and you saw it coming a mile away.
That’s how friendship and romance go
with a wild bird of prey.
I am. I am

But you’re a birthday deep with the dayshine.
From dusk to moonbreak, the dust of keepsakes.

Time & time again, I am. I am.


from The Song Diary II, released April 16, 2017
