the sound of water hijacking all other sounds

1. awake at 7
to an ant
crawling
across forehead

2. at work, we play the classics:
passion pit
cheap girls
the knife

3. corinne’s apple spice muffin
like a trophy
on the stairs
announcing
a celebration
of
timelines
full circles
and
kindness

4. someone
climbed up to the sky
with buckets
wells
barrels
full.
lined them up
and tipped them over
all at once
the sound of water
hijacking
rooftops
sidewalks
and busted gutters
the sound of water
hijacking
all other sounds

5. a rip
in last summer’s uniform
a testimony
to the passage of time
a testimony
to the unfurling

6. vampire allies
of the world
unite

7. we add
the laws of attraction
to the list
of roundtable
discussions

8. in this song
it is easy
to imagine freddie mercury
in a top hat
with a cane
(good old fashioned lover boy)
