Why are we always glued to walls?
We should be swimming
You've been careful not to fall
I've just been here
There are gorgeous things that you don't know
Like midnight swimming
Sweaty palms, skyward eyes, intentions clear.

In the morning all we have are expectations
Coffee breathe, creaky limbs, and a buzz of fear
A man made island, made for June, and made for swimming
Down 40 steps of morning eyes
Bloodshot and sincere.

They were talking in charts and maps and algorithms
Tapping out their tallies with their blunt old tools
But you can't put into numbers all the times you've been swimming
There's a power in their numbers
But a vagueness too.
