OUT OF TUNE
(11/29/07)


we talk
about writing
she and I
although
she writes songs
and I simply
sketch
with letters

she adds music
to what
she writes
which can make
the most mundane
of statements
seem an epiphany
when intertwined
with melody

she builds
such tremendous
solid structures
of thought
and sound
while my
scant offerings
are but dilapidated
picket fences
in need
of paint
and repair

she has even
morphed some songs
into the realm
of video
locking her words
into vision and vibe
putting flesh on bones
and forcing air
into lungs

it all seems such
an unfair advantage
so many
simultaneous palettes
when compared
to these
spindly
skeletal
bi-dimensional efforts

maybe
it's just
me

under
this tree

alone
to be

in misery

misery

misery

oh yeah

baby
