  • Whippoorwill

    We call that old cabin the Whippoorwill
    Drawing up plans from wicker thrones
    All of the best ideas they come from you
    You let me find them on my own
    And we parade them into every room
    And when you leave I let them go

    All my kingdom for a weekend
    All our kingdoms slip away

    Another draft in your apartment
    Catch the smell of rust and pine
    Mixing in winter coffee canisters
    Gin up a spell that stalls for time

    All my kingdom for a weekend
    All our kingdoms slip away

    All of your favorite time it comes from me
    So you put it on the calendar
    And you save it in your phone

    All my kingdom for a weekend
    All our kingdoms slip away

  • You Forget

    I remember foreign places
    Brightly colored streets where
    People with familiar faces
    Invited us to stay

    You forget

    I recall the open spaces
    Which, underneath a rising
    Covering of clouds, moon, and mountain,
    Seemed as if to fall

    You forget
