don't leave me home, swear I can hold you up
candor and rose, it won't be warm enough
seems so neatly dotted out, a lot of it was close
you saved face by being on the phone

insist I come, he thinks I'm fine, but I don't
have the trauma or the proof to show
icy creasing colors on the table, azure note
one less honest promise to parade around the throne

the modern art, my dying friends, it's cold
unjustified, it's all made up you know
seems so neatly dotted out, a lot of it was close
saved you from strained eyes and slight neck pain, I could never write my own
to tear apart and throw

they call to know it's not too far to walk alone
it won't be warm enough for the candor or the rose
i see you folding letters on the table as you talk
punching loaded feathers on unstable mattress tops

love for the wonderment, the imagery
the day wonder meant the world to me
seems so neatly dotted out, he wrote the right things too
scenes were not included, and images unused

my neighborhood's on fire and the mail won't make it out
