the moon and silver clouds
are leaning down to taste us
lickin’ your lips at night
under the light of a yellow moon
Steve was walking around
maddened by the birdcalls
over and over, like a dialtone
dead air into the nightland
under great duress from the headlights
coffee stains there
Diana was bending down
like being crushed from above
she’d left lipstick on her straw
back at the diner
and traveled back in time
earlier that day
we forgive her her acne
cuz shes on medication
and she covers it up with her darkening hair
and shadows grow thicker
and hair crawls all over
and light on the window just
crackles and slows
no place is good enough for us
we’ve been asked to leave Texas
we don’t go around women now
just men and small children

we’re facing up to our defects
it didn’t kill to take inventory
yeah, look out in my book
it’ll take ya down easy
relaxing by the pool
with girls in bikinis
drinkin’ water to stay
alert and real vital
yeah i think i’m ready
i’ve had some good training
behind me lays staggered
a good many accomplishments
i think i’m really ready
to make extra time now
to be real useful
and be depended upon
i can even stand up
and shaking my finger,
looking right at you,
say my good peace
all my friends and relations
of my distinct family
have talked to me personally
and told me as much
now all that remains
is my true love to find me
waiting away for the good years to come
