lyrics

Jane Austen
in the hospital
Your handwriting on the legal
pad was barely legible

Waiting, I wonder if I
could go all the way back
would any of it still scare
me for example the labrador
down the street
Mom carried me down
from off the car
Neighbor scolded I’d upset him
every time he took off
my thoughts got dark and menacing

Go on Romeo, bark your head off
My last terror of ignorance
is still to come
couldn’t quit it, you dumb dog
chasing speeding cars
I heard the engine
and then you
lay like a good boy
on the hot summer tar

That night, the awful relief
Now, what
are ya gonna do to me?
First symptom of guilt
then became
a permanent shame

And now I can get close
enough, close enough
to see you’re
overgrown
with a look of love

I still dream of spiders
crawling across my bed
The present, I have no place in it.
I still dream of being watched, but
not by—well, I know your
thoughts on the matter
we don’t need to discuss it

Around 3 am you will come to
your roommate’s pissed his
sheets right through
years from now,
you will build beautiful
black flowers

I came home and you directed
with your hardened hand
all of your birds who have
come back to dine and rest
in your garden again
They’ve come to rest
in your garden

Now I can get close
enough, close enough to
see you’re overgrown
with a look of love.

Bark your head off, dog
