Virga

Guess I seen lighting
guess I seen rain
guess I seen again
how nothing’s ever the same

I know the one I love,
know her in the light
find her sweet, apple shined
taciturn and tight

Been dreaming of far off thunder
waking my middle in the night
not so worried about it
been ready with worry all my life

Met heroes and mishandled hopes
met kind faced bums and devil popes
seen the twinkling in white eyes of the blind
seen the sun calling names the followers find

Hearing the call for her basement twitch
fingers full and flying over jars, rub, switch
telling her i knew the whole time true
what’s good for gander is good for you
what beauty is, is fine for the sippin rich

Been a while since the strange tidings came for me
been a solace on solstices, an equal on equinoxes
been down the roads so many times i know
can speak the colors of the lights guiding the flow

Noticed the forlorn virga falling short of earth
caught the moments of her face that’ll
never fail me till the day I die
found the coming better than the going
some days, sometimes, some ways, some rhyme

Lost the precious youth at a fill up station
traded my irresponsibility for labors of luxury
gave title to names not my own
found the heart of hearts on a beach comb

Became magistrate and masturbate
made it up as I went along
gave half to charity
told the gov the other half was gone

Buried the treasure in chronicled lays of sea
transformed the tears to gold for a simple fee
gave my soul to laughter, gave my smiles away
living but dying but loving ironic hate so I say

Guess I seen lighting
guess I seen rain
guess I seen again
how nothing’s ever the same
