And Only The Song Ever Talked About Dying
It’s dead now.
You may have believed
That it had finished over a year ago
But for the first time in your prophetic life
You were wrong.
In a strange and wholly enjoyable turn of events
I came to the realization
That I could strip away the dead weight
Of my perceived mistakes and long list of shortcomings
All it took was two 3 hour drives.
I still listen to that tune
In fact it’s one of my favorites
Just the other day I stopped inches from that downtown deadzone
And backed up a long line of people
Waiting for their turn at the red light.
I had to hear that song,
But this time it was to hear the background vocals
And not the frontman,
The one you said
You’d die to meet.
I wonder if I’ll ever get the chance
To tell you my new story
Of how I dodged my way through a labyrinth
Just to see that band
