for Nick


walking down the boulevard
watching all the lights go out

slipping through the cellar door
smelling all the rain set in

rain drips off the eaves
silence left us thunder down

leaves fall off the trees
sleep was in our hearts

when we were younger than now
everything was satisfying
when we were reckless and loud
breaking plates and prophesizing
when we were vulgar and proud
everything was everything

broken on the sea
salty spray and blood shot eyes

santiago dreams
empty bottle quiet breeze

falling to your knees
sleep was in your heart


from cries & whispers, released July 28, 2015
