Fraudulent Cranes

lyrics

I contextualize my fiction,
put it all into perspective:
there is no magic to recapture
or even old tricks to revisit.
And in the days of wine and trenches,
glass birds on verbal fountains,
sort of glad that someone did it.
Sort of glad it wasn’t me.
And if I stand here too long, I won’t be the same man.
I’ll be as idle as an engine, as paralyzed as land.
I’ve invented a character or two,
maybe one I’ve introduced to you -
a high school English teacher,
a pop music cult leader.
Ah, but the truth is always with me.
I still feel the weight of the latchkey,
a screwed up son of a drunk,
a welfare kid, an art school flunk.
Put down your forks and knives, because I struggle in both lives.
