well if we stay out all night smoking and drinking and talking i think maybe we
could figure out how to level out the playing field for people like you and me
and the guys at the end of the bar who down
glass after glass without making a sound
and think about giving up finding
their place in this world.
i get a call from a girl who was throwing a show. she said she had to cancel it due
to medical costs she incurred after drinking more than her body could take.
she said, "my hand still hurts from where they used the IV,
but other than that, i don't feel much of anything.
and i'm sorry but we'll set up something
for some other time."
i think it was laura and i who were talking about how everything important we do
we do with our hands- how we reach, how we hold, how we break, how we feel, how we move,
how we toss a few back just to handle the pain
from the place where technology entered the vein
in a sad attempt to keep us alive
and it's all pretty much the same hand that we're dealt
and it's all pretty much the same hand that we've held
and it's all pretty much the same hand that we dealt
we'll set up something else for some other time.
