i keep it written on a locket and pinned into my jacket
pocket, these silver shapes who spell your name loom
around. and i sing it to myself so i don’t forget the
sound. i took a chance on highway driving with the
sadness packed in to the side of me that planted pills in
the beautiful garden i grew of love for you, oh how i
watered it with tears so blue. see i knew a girl who
never cried, so i painted my room the color of her eyes.
like a fortress, or a blown up portrait in blue, or some
strange womb or tearless tomb. it’s easy now just forget
about it. i start again every day without it. with a new
lease on life, i’ll forget about it. but it’s all around
still. a new lease on life, i’ve forgotten, i’ve off-ed
it. i can see you through the window light. me and the
shadow-kids go dumpster diving all for nothing, we’ll
still go hungry tonight. the world outside is silver-
white. but it’s easy now to forget about it. i start
again every day without it. i’ve a new lease on life, i’d
forget about it but it’s all around still. i’ve a new
lease on life, i’ve forgotten. i promise. i promise.
