in a room where the walls are close enough
for my thoughts to bounce back
each time I turn my head and my eyes meet a new patch of white
concrete they come back
at me violently
each time I feel they're about
to start again
and hit the walls with strength

and I close my eyes
and I am trying to guess which direction
they're gonna take
I see the blue curtains fly when the wind comes in

I see the sun

How we dream
and wish and imagine
and get fragments of lives
and minds
and how it is not enough
and how my mind won't rest
and how i am scared
and ravished and lost
and clueless as to

cluesless as to how strong the shiver will be
to meet there rather than here
how i want to embrace the this that we don't know
but we wish we wish we wish

like planes
crossing the sky in the morning
and a girlish voice singing in the living room
and i am
listening to life on mars

it's a dream wake up call
it's a gate opening
it's a dog escaping, a gate opening
a talk about a day

and a 'good day' exchangedt


from A ship, like a ghost, like a cell, released June 1, 2006
