john the conqueror

keep up with the good luck

make it sweet enough for the rest of us

put the blood up over the doors

and keep the first born under the floor boards

you can’t just keep looking back

you can’t just keep dusting tracks.

sit still until you know how to make the shape

sit up s.o.s. rush rush then just wait

remember how quickly it all just fell open

know in an instant that it won’t be closed again

you sat on the edge together throwing things in

now you owe it to him to keep a stiff upper lip

laugh at the horror, fill the past with the future, my head lines and heart lines reach out for each other.
