I’m looking at fourteen bullet casings contained in a plastic bag so they keep
The traces of their origins the piney place where a life begins
By the river by the river oh
I’m reading the expressions of heart-felt sympathy from the American Legion and auxiliary
Steeped in the mystic poetry of men whose lives and mine must meet in the river
In the murky river oh
Made unto your image great father of minds from the wide shining sea
To those lonesome drunken times
I remember you biked thousands of miles once your heart missed a beat
But still it was you always dreaming of me
I’m asking you now where lies the goal
Approached unmistaken for once and for all
Was it the river was it the river oh
I dreamed of many bully brothers and swift swimming sisters
Thoughts wrung to rags and heels burned to blisters
Faces of weather that flash in their time till the last cast unexpected flies from the line
To the river to the river oh


from Ticks and Trips, released March 30, 2013
