Bridges on Fire

Long Island Mages

I’ve got a place to goI belong in the rocks and the riversBout 50 miles thoughMake connections like stones after fish Above the rising tide of the waterEven the highest bridge is a lieAnd you’re lying to me babyBut you lie And the cold ones are coming aliveAnd they knowAll […]

Jesus in Pigtails

“Let’s keep it clean”Said the old paper bag refereeFrom his new and bold podium And in the personal spaceA line of sight on a giggly girl in a wiggling worldShe doesn’t seem to recognizeAll the portraits stained with everyday lifeShe’ll find the proper lies and I will follow He got […]
