*poem* I Have to Start This Way
« on: May 12, 2017, 03:18:41 pm »



I HAVE TO START THIS WAY
SO THE SENTENCE DOESNíT RUN ON
OR ESCAPE
(FROM HERE) AND FLY INTO YOUR EYES OR TURN AROUND AND ERASE ITSELF
OR FALL RIGHT THROUGH (LIKE HERE) AND CONTINUE ON THE BACK OF THE PAGE
OR IN EIGHT YEARS.
BUT ONLY THE BACK OF THE HANDS
ARE SUFFICIENTLY TRUSTWORTHY
THE EARS? NO
THE HEELS? TO A CERTAIN EXTENT.
THE HAIR? NO, IT GROWS OUT AND OUT AND INTO BOXES
THE VIEW? I WOULD ENJOY IT MORE IF SOMEONE WAS HERE WITH ME
-AND IT WAS A LITTLE BIT BRIGHTER

I HAVE TO START THIS WAY
YOU CROSSED THE RIVER ON HORSEBACK
TELL ME ABOUT THAT
YOU BOUGHT TWENTY SMOKES AND A TIN OF SNOW
TELL ME ABOUT THAT
YOU PASSED AN OLD WATCHTOWER AND A PILE OF WET ROCKS
WHY DONíT YOU TELL ME ABOUT IT
BUT YOU DIDNíT
YOU ONLY SANG ABOUT HOW LONELY YOU
AND I DIDNíT REALLY WANT TO HEAR IT
YOU TOOK TWO STEPS BACK AND THREE STEPS TOWARDS
AND ENDED RIGHT HERE IN THE SUN
NOW THATíS WHAT I WANNA KNOW
YOU SPENT YOUR LAST STRENGTH REACHING THIS PLACE
YOU MUST BE TIRED NOW
BUT IT WOULDNíT BE MY POEM, SO HELLO TO YOU
THIS IS THE FIRST LINE
