Undoing Time

from Dead Weight by Jon Hughes



Undoing Time

She saw me through the windowpane black
With nothing on but rain,
Talking to delirious clouds,
I knew them all by name.
Then a lightening bolt said, ‘I’m listening.’
It struck me all the same.

Looking at the back of my hands,
I don’t know them at all.
I have not been given these scars
From taking noble calls.
I’ve been giving time to the position I’m in.
No mystery at all.

So tell me that I’m undoing time,
Working for my wine.
Sitting ‘neath the biblical sun,
Stuck in my own mind.
Taking wisdom from the negation of some
Who were never worth the time.


from Dead Weight, released January 31, 2011
