The radio waves sang like enemies in my parents’ house
I couldn’t hear all of the frequencies then
But I hear them now
The world it would turn inconsolably
And the sky turned black
I walked by the schools and the factories
But always turned back
And there were apples on the floor
There was another world war
Piles of plastics at the stores
Jimi Hendrix & The Doors
There was something on my mind
Could not fast-forward or rewind
I could just live in that time
With too many valentines
A candy heart that said ‘Be Mine’
Two empty bottles of red wine
Some new impossible design
With only intersecting lines
The haunted house on Halloween
The happy heart you’ve never seen
Left leg breaks through the trampoline
The red, the gold, the grey, the green
The leaves would fall in angry piles
You cut your hair in different styles
And we would lay there and smile
But it was only for a while
It’s only ever for a while
But sweetness comes in single-files
And your heart marches for miles.
