As Capitan of a ghost ship
Sailing through clouds;
Rain the stars for the wishes that were stolen back down
Into your way.

Discussions turn to Russians —
Samovars and scorns;
Take the time for translating our fictional forms
Into our days.

Cause I've been in denial
That my life has been only happening.

Thought streams echo over
Whispers in flight
And they float through the hollows of the whispering night
Into my palm.

Statuesque in the shadows —
Streetlamps and smoke;
And a car passes by for every promise we broke
And keeps driving on.

Cause I've been in denial
That my life has been only happening.


from Sunshine Remorse, released January 12, 2019
