Well folks, I’ve met the storage capacity maximum for this site (and just at the halfway point)! The saga continues to its completion at http://songjournal2.podomatic.com/ so please take a minute to update your bookmarks and subscriptions. The first entry at the new location will be Tuesday, Oct 23 and this site will remain up as an archive of the project to this point. My deepest thanks for everyone who’s been following along and for those curious enough to drop in.

See you on the other side!

Eric

#186 no salvation premium

i’ll live a month
of sundays all
in one day if
only i could
make them
them go away

the tea kettle
mousetrap reflection
tool doesn’t work
as planned
and the sun sets
as quickly
as it rises

no holy ghost building
no pilgrim stranger
or salvation premium

the band doesn’t
even attempt
to tune before
they begin the
sad waltz for
monday
nor do i
dance

no holy ghost building
no pilgrim stranger
or salvation premium

#185 face up
Clean

goodbyes and leavings
beginnings
middles
and ends
there’s no place to stay
no place to stay

the machine moves
with or without me
sometimes i’m on
sometimes i want off

a puzzle piece
turned upside
down doesn’t fit
unless the rest of
the world is too

if the world is
upside down
then i’m
face up

#184 when we crossed the divide (together)
Clean
October 20, 2007 05:37 AM PDT

wide open spaces
enclosed in a moment
all that meant anything
surrounded by so
much detail and
pointlessness
was you

and then we crossed
the divide together

it was the only thing
that mattered not the
elevator bread nor
the hopeless
microfine lines
they drew

when we crossed
the divide together

#183 another old house
Clean
October 19, 2007 03:20 AM PDT

it was all
desks and beds
dark from the lamps
and faulty wiring
and doors leading
nowhere

and natalie
disappeared
into the ductwork
of a new old
house we never
knew

another old house
devours us
another old house
swallows us whole

so i bought
a tiny japanese
man he was on
the lam to find
her he disappeared
in there too

another old house
devours us
another old house
swallows us whole

take a picture
it lasts longer
it’s a thousand
misunderstood
words but it holds
no candle
to a thousand
incarnations of
a rose

take your comic
book x-ray
specs and tell me
can you see
my secret desire
my longest day
my dream of the
eternal return
or just the pixel
myth of the
last day

take a picture
it lasts longer

take a picture
it lasts longer

there are roads
and there are roads
no matter which ones
you take you always
end up in the same
place

we can run headlong
into heather birds
and bees escaping
into dry leaves clinging
to sweaters all the
same

choosing’s a game
win or lose
choosing’s a game
win or lose

spin the big wheel
and watch yourself
roll off the tracks bells
and whistles look best
with party hats and
shame

choosing’s a game
win or lose
choosing’s a game
win or lose

#180 you first or me
Clean
October 16, 2007 04:26 AM PDT

in these empty passenger cars
with no engine to pull them
we can live out here in the cold
pile everything around us and
make a go

we’ll pretend to be buried alive
though this coffin is too small
and whoever digs us up will
be our forever and in the cold we’ll
make a go

will it be you first or me
another blanket please
will it be you first or me
another blanket please

and when they come looking for us
i’ll try hard not to laugh as they
poke their way through blankets
and phony coffins looking for their
lo and behold

will it be you first or me
another blanket please
will it be you first or me
another blanket please

#178 you got to look up to see what's comin' down
Clean

the leaves know nothing
of a mile
the dirt underneath can’t
see the stars

sometimes you have
to be dead before you
can be born again

frost on the pumpkin says
it’s time
ice and mist leaks from the
sky

sometimes you have
to be dead before you
can be born again

at the gate

what’s your name
i said
what’s your name

(nobody)

sometimes you have
to be dead before you
can be born again
