A Definite Maybe

Lost & found & lost again
if one means to be the least bit accurate
there are bigger mistakes to be made
along with more interesting
consequences as you take it an
octave higher than any dog-eared hymnal would
ever recommend

Sworn to green scenes right out of the tide book
w/bubbles & like glistening
catalogs of subtropical flowers
as printed on silk sleeves of fog

If I wasn’t there you’d have to
dream up someone else to talk to someone
else who wouldn’t listen because the song the
wind sings in the palm trees is cranked up to
10 on the voodoo dial & if you had wings
you’d probably make a similar sound

drenched in corrugated steel
if there was any other way to say it
