Listening to the music
And watching the dogs
That’s all I ever want
That’s just peace of mind
The right now wrong
The world of where you see
Is only a shadow of what it be
The water is a link
The show is an edge
The break is a levy
The message is sent
The line between anything
Is only a velvet sofa
Sit on it
And fall
Drown in something simple
Ex is an apple
The bee stings softly
The violence stops now
Belonging and different
All people
See the sun
The same
Man do I love music
I see myself in it
Like a cement tongue
Dangling spit
Driving to the end
Of resistance
Everyone bends
Not everyone breaks
And this isn’t all there is.
