WORDS

WIRES

These wires tangle my body.

Tightly. I go where they go.

All these things that I’m learning show me how much I don’t know.

The moon shines on me. Days come. How quickly they pass.

Time falls like an anchor. Here I am with my face to the glass.

 

I’m burning just like an animal. Raging. Here on my own.

Nowhere feels like safe ground to me. I wait. Nose to the grindstone.

 

Nothing’s changing she told me.

I’m not falling for that, dear.

I’ve blown all of my best lines. I can’t talk and make it seem clear.

I mean well, baby. One mistake and all that work’s gone.

The worst kind of coward talks loud and throws his weight around.

 

I’m burning just like an animal. Raging. Here on my own.

Nowhere feels like safe ground to me. I wait. Nose to the grindstone.

 

Keep this well out of earshot.

I’ve stayed too long at your feet.

I know I talk more than I move. I give more light than give heat.

I’m so sorry. Don’t put me in the fire again.

Rings of iron. It’s like spitting in the ocean, talking to you.

 

I wait. I wait.

I wait. I wait.

 

I’m burning just like an animal. Raging. Here on my own.

Nowhere feels like safe ground to me. I wait. Nose to the grindstone.

I’m burning just like an animal. Raging. Here on my own.

Nowhere feels like safe ground to me. I wait. Nose to the grindstone.
