i sing the body pavement

i sing the body pavement

to the sound of untuned instruments

old men

collecting ideas in hats

the lead singer said

this key will only fit one note at time

but it went on for miles

and a part of me left

or maybe just came back

for a few minutes or days

i am found

in that nothing can be lost

and i trust

as in i have no other choice

the drummer sang all the songs

at the last show i saw

in the desert

the lead singer

was escaping out the stage door

handcuffed to the microphone stand

and i was thinking

what a perfect mistake my best moments have been
