Holes (2012)

I am lost in a fever of gypsies

Selling their wires and candy ropes

I am hoping to buy a boulder

To steady my telescope

I’ll magnify the heathens

And shower in the morning light

I hope I’ll discover the traces

Of where I might end up tonight

I've found these holes

where sunlight is sinking in spots here and there

wherever did my sunshine go

i put it on a milk carton

but it never returned.

It must have found a better place

someone to bask in its growing heat

cause here the light is fading fast

and my mind is fading with it.

the rain is coming with valiant flair

i cannot swallow toxic air

if I escaped away from here

would I ever see your face again?
