World Poetry Day

We’re all drinking shitty coffee waiting

Something’s happening that’s liberating

Wind that’s captured in our mouths and jars

Wishes falling flat before the stars.

 

We’re all drinking shitty coffee yearning

Wishing that repeating words meant learning

Teaching running kids the alphabet

We ain’t outrun tomorrow’s sunset yet.

 

Got the dress, we got the carbon rock

Call you California four o’clock

Wake up, seen it all, get out of town

No time left to start your breaking down.

 

Shovel in the dirt, dirt in the sky

Magni-quanti-puri-justi-fy

We’re all drinking shitty coffee thinking

We may be in a lifeboat, but it’s sinking.
