I will wear this song like a coat
thinking of old friends
and past lives.
Before I was expected to befriend the wives
wishing I was in the garage having a beer with my friends.
When my choices and their consequences were clearer
and only affected me.
When I could drive east between the sunflower filled ditches,
drowning myself in Radiohead till the sun set.
I will wear this face today
but you will not see me.
I am somewhere else today,
somewhere you can’t find me.
I live inside this song
its colors and its rhythms,
its story and the feeling that rises in my chest
every time I hit Play.
