EMPTY PICTURES 2 / OUTPOST AMSTERDAM
Love is a Flame,
can’t just hold it in your hands.
to burn a hole in the skin
so the finger bones
tattoos you for all to see.
It’s a Fire
keep within your stomach
bleeding in to stink decay
can’t tame light
Pass it on
Like sativa saliva
to the invincible, the farthest, the impossible, the loser, the closest
Typing your Soul into a Green Screen
of codes that no one understands,
for the Knowledge is power based on Thin
is not the way to breath.
and I May not be strong enough to
shut the colliding cells
into quiet oblivion of Friday dinners
and Saturday cocktails.
So walk with me if you will
the rain hurts less when you have
no Time to Punch in,
and the shadows get their mystery back
once lost in simple gloom.
If you love me like your mixed screams of guitars
that Cover your voice so it’s never clear,
Just take my hand.
the fire is big enough for these two hobos to shine.
Of All the Nights We Could Make
where the Street lights are Dim and Wet
the breeze is chilling but your Jacket’s Soft
and Between your Neck there’s always
words to whisper.
Of All the nights we could have made
putting Notes in That order
and there could Not be another
My colors Bolder, Thicker
like a trance dance
of the hand in your hair.
Of All the Nights you might have spent
Shattering the Air Around with the
Arrows of your laughter
a Merry-Go Round of fuchsia cotton
Of all the nights we could make,
I just can only make a Million, on my very own.
I wanna eat you off Alive,
you’re right in escaping
I wanna take off any layer of skin you built up around your eyes
to make you see that this energy is flowing through
I’ll probably spit it out on some boxed wrapped rendition
while walking away Head down.
If everyone is on the pill these days
be it off the shelves Xanax
or slow liquid waterfall of peace in a bottle
down the market on the corner next to the newsstand
We all are facing a War
So what is the problem if you are my drug?
The one I need to keep walkin’
confident in the streets of the world
What if I abuse of you?
Don’t you feel good too?
Our words danced in front of those walls of colors and stains
Go ahead and Ignore it
You touched me
and that’s all We’re Fighting for.
