Play Me Out Johnny

Deferred hope

Heart sick

I cannot stand at docks adding tears to the sea

I’m annoyed with my sadness


Turn up my collar promptly and button trembling lips

Face circle cycles with a stern face

Kill off the cynical character in his folly.

Play his last moments on an old piano outro

Wash my face and grind my teeth


Swim without any surface in sight

Refuse to panic

Live and die in strength

Refuse to express dissatisfaction

Hold my chest in dark closets

And get over myself.
