boxcars

 

throw your favorite tee on

the one with that band

i never paid attention who

but i can hum all their songs

let’s jump boxcars

head to the north side

maybe we’ll hit the coast

work on that cottage

you always wanted to own

we’ll use the flocks overhead

to measure the changing of the seasons

conversation to keep clarity

inside our heads

we’re both a bit insane, aren’t we

travelling rails

dreaming of cottages and

birds with wings outstretched

me humming tunes

i could never remember to forget.
