Track Name: Platform
when the train leaves
don’t mind the gap
smell of the grease
shapes on the map

please turn your back
climb up those stairs
I can’t come back
raincheck your prayers

stripes in limbo on the platform
flickering like black and white
I’d hold you in a zoetrope
but you’d look better in the light

arms akimbo in the crowd the
flashing strobes of white and black
I’d watch you in this flipbook
but you flip a page, you can’t flip back

when the bird calls
at 4 a. m.
waking us all
dreams left to mend

I’m still awake
tending this end
string left untied
unending thread
Track Name: Falling in a Silo
Did you build it for me?
As I’m climbing up the tower
Are you looking at me
or a hazy old mirror?
Time slips by
like my feet on the ladder

Was the harvest for you?
from the brim to the bottom
Watch a sliver of noon
through the corrugated hollow
Nothing moves
when you’re falling in a silo
