____

When you die...come back to life

So we can laugh and cry and curse the living!

O!  I want to curse anything.

 

 

Drab concrete sky leaving me with too many songs

 

 

 Sadness leaves, because I forget the words.

The words are so many, I just wrinkle

up and laugh and squeeze my hurting hands.

 

 

I remember being young and frisky.

I remember being a creamy hot thing.
I remember the lemony days and hasty dreamy nights
that snuck away with the words.
Stole away.


The one song I remember, the one I loved
went:


"when you die...come back to life."
