Measure me in metered lines
In one decisive stare
The time it takes to get from here to there
My ribs that show through t-shirts
and these shoes I got for free
I'm unconsoled, I'm lonely
I am so much better than I used to be

Terrified of telephones and shopping malls and knives
and drowning in the pools of other lives
rely a bit too heavily on alcohol and irony
Get clobbered on by courtesy 
In love with love and lousy poetry

And I'm leaning on this broken fence
between past and present tense
And I'm losing all those stupid games
that I swore I'd never play
But it almost feels okay

Circumnavigate this body, 
of wonder and uncertainty. 
Armed with every precious failure, 
and amateur cartography. 
I breathe in deep before, 
I spread those maps out on my bedroom floor. 

And I'm leaning on this broken fence, 
Between Past and Present tense. 
And I'm losing, 
All those stupid games, 
That I swore I'd never play. 
But it feels okay. 

And I'm leaving. 
Wave goodbye 
And I'm Losing, 
But I'll try, 
With the last ways left, to remember. 
Sing my imperfect offering
