BUTTERFLIES ( w/ help from J. Johnson)

Heat

my shoulder

tiny feet alight

eye to eye

why?

moves to my knee,

more heat

we look at one another— — —-

” Who do you think you are?

” Who me?  I say.

Yeah you-there you sit black and tan in hand,

“You know butterflies can’t talk.   Didn’t your mother ever tell you?”

Listen, I have a message from the other side,

“Yeah pray tell, by the way- one of your wings is bigger than the other…”

This is just what we wanted to talk to you about,

” Que?”   ( more heat)

Feel before you speak,

with that the butterfly flitted over my head and away.

I’m lost, I’m too tired, to try.

  

  

SONG OF THE MONTH                   

     JACK Johnson’s  – ” NO GOOD WITH FACES “

 

No good with faces

And I’m bad with names

Gave me directions

But it’s all the same

I’m lost

I’m too tired to try

Street lamps are broken

Black the way I came

Who broke the moonlight

Watch it wax and wane

I’m lost

I’m too tired to try

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves now

There’s no need for rain

Its our own parade

Let’s not be afraid of our reflections

Its not only you

You’re looking at now

Road signs were stolen

Left here holding this flame

Who stole my patience

Who stole my way

I’m lost

I’m too tired to try

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves now

There’s no need for rain

Its our own parade

Let’s not be afraid of our reflections

Its not only you

You’re looking at now

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves now

There’s no need for rain

Its our own parade

Let’s not be afraid of our reflections

Its not only you

You’re looking at now

Who you looking at now

Who you looking at now

No good with faces

And I’m bad with names

Gave me directions

But it’s all the same

I’m lost

I’m too tired to try
