Music Gave Me Goosebumps Today

Music gave me goosebumps today.

Where have you been…

Sunday evening, steely surrender.

Tomorrow is pretend — we live crazy.

Godheads — burned my image on their bodies,

my image thoughtless and lousy.


When we’re on the go… we go.

It’s too bad I lost that. It’s too

bad for so many things. It’s

gospel, it’s fruitless, forged forgiveness.

A ghost. Where does it


go.  Vibrancy snuffed out.

A wave, a grave, a man with

an outstretched hand. It’s

gone again. The light that wraps

around your head, it’s birch,

it’s wooden, it’s the end.
