All The Things (That Have Been on My Mind Lately)

How much time, floods, foregrounds and forever, subjects, objects, goals, goal-line stands

I know very little about photography

The way future -- that's been on my mind a lot

There's this way a voice can cut right through you or a moment or something you see

And I've been trying to stick right in that moment

Maybe a little too much vs. maybe that's my job vs. maybe that's just what I'm supposed to be here

I've never understood how sugar in coffee could taste good, but I remember a great cup of coffee with maple syrup in it and milk before I knew I shouldn't drink that

And this guy that was into all this international lit before I got that

You know, cool and worldly and conversant in Milan Kundera and Amos Oz and the Singing Detective

And I have this story about his girlfriend

They probably all moved to New York or Amsterdam or went into the Peace Corps

What made me remember that?

So many people come and go and some of them are just gone

One more plan until I'm home

Some People Really Like Cake

I'm not gonna lie
I miss ice cream

Then there's cookies and candy and honey

Here we go, here we go, here we go

There are winners
That's one way of looking at things

There are no winners
There are no right ways to go about it other than just going

Something and then cake and then something else

Make a go of it

The thing about a landscape painting -- take it all in

A funny hat -- put it on

Oh no, oh no, oh no

I can't be trusted to work it all out

When You Look Inside the Ground

Pluto and its moon

Ice over everything

Your kinda ice, their kinda ice

A real long pause

Comfort vs. less so

Less and less and less and less

Never goes negative

And then there is more

You know your way around more

And then there is dinner

Gotta Gotta Gotta Gotta Get Get Get Get

All the things you mean

All the fingers and all the dams

Heaven for humpday

And hail for heretics

There are theories and stories and frameworks and terms

Mean it

There are days that call for a little extra snuggling

And then cats on the bed

And the way you could see the whole moon even though the bright part was just a sliver of a smile

It goes around but we do, too

The ocean swells up to say hello

The ocean dips to say nothing to see here

The ocean rushes and courses and cycles and squalls

You do it with your eyes
