Miscellany

Starry nights
midnight drives
blue skies, and
train rides

Shopping carts
in parking lots
New Year's Eve,
the ball drop

Blue jays in the sunshine,
devil's smile in his eyes;
everything green under the trees
from the sunlight

I made a list for you
so you would know
when you're not around
where I go

When I'm right here
right beside you I'm
right where I want to be
for all the wrong reasons
and for all of the same things

Silver bullets,
high speed chases,
golden apples and
hairband bracelets

Tightrope walking,
straight shot down
all these crooked lines
no way out

Airplane trails
across the sky,
daydreaming, music playing
losing track of time

I made a list for you
so you would know
when you're not around
where I go

When I'm right here
right beside you I'm
right where I want to be
for all the wrong reasons
and for all of the same things
