You Could Be

Tending cows in a field full of lightning

Singing Glory Be Hallelujah

Smiling through competitions other people run

Wrapping it all up before dinner.

Singing of sleep and my gardens, planted with

Eternal optimism: my faith in liars and faithlessness

Lying on a beach remembering

Shamans and compasses and plums

Until the police shine a spotlight on lust

Drinking and dancing with boys

Who want the boys with the girls

Singing karaoke with trolls

Memory of promise, which taints everything I’ve known

Vows broken–clearly stated yet denied.
