inkbleed

chart a course out to sea
quiet waters carry me
fall apart like a tree
bending backwards on the beach

i hear the wind talk back when the hurricane tries
to pull her into the spin
she says "i'm only gonna tell you one more time,
don't bother me again"
but you know a hurricane does what a hurricane does,
it swallows everything

and she will drown inside the spinning wheel

chart a course out to sea
quiet waters carry me
and when the deep calls to deep
will you answer, will you sleep?

and like a derrick perched on a burned out rig
in the gulf of mexico
you watch the ink bleed out of a broken pen
a mile down below
a crude black cloud invades the blue
it colors everything

like the bruises on your skin that never heal

they remind you of the darkest matter
done in charcoal on a faded yellow
piece of paper crumpled in a corner
smooth the creases and you die all over

chart a course out to sea
quiet waters carry me
fall apart like a tree
bending backwards on the beach
