Flowers Where Your Face Should Be
Bright blue hydrangeas Lost in the weeds Bus stops and barbed wire on the way to stare At the heart of the earth from the Poas peak Just like the ones that we grew back in Jersey Hung upside down, drying out for the wedding There's a man with his head in his hands on the sidewalk His wife's there behind him just off of the street She scratches his back as he sobs on the asphalt And what strikes me most is the symmetry How they're framed just like you and me When the light from the hospital's eastern wing Tangles up in your hair and the sadness that pooled in my heart Starts emptying slowly Well I saw you last night in my dream And there were hydrangeas where your face should be The redwoods feel lonely and lunar and distant The sun comes in fragments through breaks in the trees And I feel further from home than I've ever been These thin lines of light across space tether you to me They pull in my memories, back to our apartment on 2nd Street Through the South-facing window the light catches lengths of your hair Like a path that you left me Well I saw you last night in my dream But there were azaleas where your face should be Pieces of us in the morning sun Sleeping bags under the 101 She takes off his glasses and she falls asleep again They don't got much but goddamn they got love Well I saw you last night in my dream I'm gonna marry you underneath driftwood from Crescent City
