  1. kind of a song/poem thingy I wrote.

    “Maple Leaf Crushed”

    Barren as a brook
    After a winter mistress
    You need,
    A girl of all seasons
    I’m feeling fall myself
    All maple leaf crushed
    Under brand new school shoes

    Do you miss yourself?
    Like a foreign bruise
    Do you know yourself?
    Like paperbacks chewed
    Letters on a page
    Words we’d erase
    How we age

    And I know what you’d say
    So say, so say
    It goes away
    And I know what you’d say
    So say, so say
    You can’t be small
    If you’re nothing at all

    I miss the fever
    Reeling forward
    Stoked like a fire
    When you’d toss clothes at me
    Or black out on a back deck
    And forget reality
    I miss feigning happiness
    Drowning in your sheets
    Your abyss

    And I know what you’d say
    So say, so say
    It goes away
    And I know what you’d say
    So say, so say
    You can’t be small
    If you’re nothing at all

    My paper airplane
    Who shot you down?
    I crack the hourglass
    You swallow the sand
    We set out to sea without a plan
    No sight of land

    I crack the hourglass
    You swallow the sand
    I crack the hourglass
    You swallow the sand

    And I know what you’d say
    So say, so say
    It goes away, but I thought you’d stay
    And I know what you’d say
    So say, so say
    I thought you’d stray
    You can’t be small
    If you’re nothing at all
