from by Lonely Deer



I'm talking right over you
like I know what to do.
We walk the line.
We're passing through.
The road is always broken,
they don't save it for the chosen few.

I said we're a prison.
You said we're a plum.
I said this is over.
You knew we'd just begun.
We have such bad ideas,
and that's not something from which you can run.

I thought you were a snake charmer,
and you once were.
I was not the magician
that I pretended to be.
Everything I've transfixed has given way
under a shaky voice and a spirit tame
not fit for conjuring.

Hiccups at the orgy.
A sweater abandoned on a lake.
Five years is a long time to make a mistake.
