sweet tooth (in e minor)

you crave me
when I inhale
air bittersweet.

I’d want you,
quick exhales,
morning’s too soon.

we’re only
drowning in sweets
please me,
oh, oh, oh,
leave me.

we’ll move fast
devour the sky
make moments last.

you’ll need me
that want as I go,
I am the tease.

we’re only
drowning in sheets
please me,
oh just go and
leave me.

you crave me
yet here I am
seems incomplete.

we’ll see soon
only what’s real,
a greedy sweet tooth.

[author’s note: lyrics from a song written in 2002, maybe]

country song 3- jack (in e major)

i see it when his eyes change shape
across smoke swung lingering in bars the same
across hands cold holding sweating drinks
through endless meetings with simple names

burdens of the stonewall sleeping dead
ones who tease tickling dreaming eyes
those stupid faces and stupid chances while
far away from him and her, sometimes i

deal a hand of solitaire
he loves me most when he leaves me there

i see it when his eyes change shape
across smoke swung lingering in bars the same
me, i’ll find a line of whiskey shots
then burn a memory of his fragile face

tomorrow if he wakes in time to see
i’m lacing up my running shoes
pack a sack with Jack Kerouac
find again him nothing good to lose

he says baby it’ll be like before
he says baby just make your way back through the door…

deal a hand of solitaire
you know he loves me most when he leaves me there

i’m through these tongue tastes of empty air
can’t have a memory of what was never there.
