Today, I decided to take a break from introducing forms of poetry. It can be a bit trying. Also, I went out last night. So sue me.
This is an old piece, but I like it. If you would care to click the link, you can see a live version with my band, The Dinner Situation. Pardon my singing, please.

and Gretel. I am too freaked out by
the concept of the movie exisiting
to go see the movie.
I dawdled, and now I've lost your shadow,
But I've forked the path for myself.
You would be proud
As I wander wildly away to the left
And cast no crumbs with which to find my way back.
It's all over now.
It's all just begun.
And the beginning is a very good place to start,
Over and over like I've done before,
But this time you aren't looking.
I guess I'll just twist and wither while trying to find the light.
Sometimes the sun just don't shine,
You've warned me before.
And I suspect that the sun won't shine as often as it used to
What with you being so far ahead, and all.
I don't need to be forgiven.
It's so improbable anyway.
Back to out regularly scheduled program tomorrow. Ciao kids!
