have you learned to ride the static
the in between stations
the dogs of life
a feral herd of decisions and outcomes
scattered like glass on the shores of your wild ages
no more busting just barking
howl for no moon
plan a life and be swept up in the tempest of it's undoing
the tempest, new morning
a motherfucker in the white house
learn to love and forget to forgive
chill with max while he smokes weed
get fucked up less often and more intentionally
your friends are dominators who never cease to remind you
what you've known and lost over and over
this is your admission of who you've harmed and
what you've done
this is the river
all is adoration
i don't care what anyone says, phish blows man
die cast in distant lingering persistence
under cover, wily loud and blue
maybe ride to LA this summer
buy a whip
chill with david in the earnest desert
go back to new york city
i believe you've had enough
peel away the facade of a present unfolding vibrancy
loud and blue
drive and cruise
sing every day
thank you for your precious time
forgive me if i start to cry
that's how i got to memphis

"A butterfly cut of rotting board; not exactly BASHFUL SLASHER, embodying where we aren't: the far side, right meets left, personal & universal return & collide, otherwise alone. Songs of you, but you never met. He's there with your first Moxie, vice, no guilt. Drums, guitar, cotton & wool, steel or otherwise. A tender thrill. Don't fear, the ghoul is not with violence."

- James Coarse, 2017
