"time comes in particles" someone once said
and this is what i remember, this is how my brain works.
you got all the facts and i got all the useless details.
if i believe in anything i’d pray to the gods of injuries
to stay out of our lives, except in times like these.

i put ships on rails, we put ourselves on trains,
you put your trust into the world, i put my hand where it’s safe.
my words form knots, your words form figure eights.
i’d like to multiply horizons from battlefields to the stage.

who will we be the next time we meet?
with our cracked cuticles and our sharp teeth.
all things hidden in the mouth of the wolverine.
all things playful and mean.
i got my bridges built.

you won’t become numb, i won’t stay the same.
if i try hard enough i can cry paper planes
and we’ll connect the dots in the history books
and you’ll see the bigger picture, i’ll shrink down the greater good.
we keep our fingers crossed all the way through the evening news.
i promise ankle anthems sitting drunk on the kitchen floor.
so let’s bite our lips and grab our wrists and sing.
i think a storm is moving in.

so watch out for our favorite apocalypse.

and who will we be the next time we meet?
with our cracked cuticles and our sharp teeth?
all things hidden in the mouth of the wolverine.
all things hidden and mean.

can you do me a favor? can you do me a favor?
can you give me one cent for everything that doesn’t make any sense?
can you do me a favor? i could be a rich woman by now.
