alone in a tin can with the poor
I came knocking at your door
with no song to bear and no rhyme to sing
A note a beat on a scale
composed in fragile detail
drawn to the staff among space and lines
We’re eroded strings and alder wood
strained for the common good
as we strum along, reverberate in syncopation

as the train came down the trail
we were crushed to one
a gypsy came to gather us up
to trade in the market for luck
unique in form for some, wasted coin for most
placed in a pocket with holes to fall out behind and roll
how does it feel to lose? the comfort of never knowing


from From the Ground, released March 4, 2016
