So Dig This Big Crux

Month: May, 2016

Shy With Eyes


I went somewhere with you
In my mind last night
The story took place
In a wide open space
We were killing time in Tennessee
Drinking cheap red wine
Reading books about the sea
Living on our last dime

I’m shy with your eyes

Across the river there’s a place
Red buildings in the sky
Cars pass me by
White cloud lines
Then it occurred to me
You were standing right there
Right in front of me

I’m shy with your eyes


Objects Along a Wall


Without realizing it, I put everything I had against the wall. Nothing left for the rest of the apartment. Like a sad hotel room.

Is this the right place?
