Underneath the water the waterwheel turns
spreading forth from the river to the beds
we were led down the garden path
to the allure of the flowery display
the rhubarb donned her finest dress
to court the eligible sprouts
the dancing was tempting, perfume filled the air
it's no place for a man like me to be

I was bound to pick an eggplant from another garden bed
when i failed to hear the farmer say:
"today you'll feel alive but tomorrow you'll be dead
when the fruits of desire rot away"

A slender build in a floral gown with her leafy hair flowing
caught all the boys throughout the yard
her dress laid low, the look I stole
the dog below is hard to time
we long to be honey bees swarming free
free from the honey bear who lusts for the sting
the tree limbs raise the roof in admiration
of something I'm not quite sure of

love what you have then what you don't


from From the Ground, released March 4, 2016
