lyrics

I will go. I am going. I went.
The past tense
From the wall
to the window
And saw the
wilting ginger plant
All green and yellow
Not rotting
Opposite blossoming
Like our love
and sentiments inverted:
"To sterve in wanhope and distresse
Farwel my lif, my lust, my gladnesse"
Some jokes aren't funny
but must be told
Some songs aren't sad
but sound just-so
Some acts are colonial fantasies
but drape the flag of nature
Bah! Humbug!
Here I am
The present tense
Paint chips dot the crevices
"Spring cleaning"
Open the window
The sound of your
mouth and nose asleep
And again my budding love
My watering eyes
