For When the Day Got Away from Me

I had so many ideas early

About the befores and what's later

I had food, too, and drinks

There was sunshine and then there was colder

There were days after days

This balances on the tip of a diamond

This plays the days forward after the dinosaurs because the dinosaurs are all dead

Or birds

This, too, flocks

This, too, circles in the sky

And tells gravity to go fuck itself

Hollow bones and wicked vantage

Old thoughts, old minds, old attempts at old dreams

We keep on and on

We keep the day in front of us where we can see it

Until we don't
