years later, some of
these photos will be misplaced,
families will churn

out new albums, unaware
any stories were amiss

seven albums deep
into Queen, i am
hooked – so this
is happiness,
listening to
you listening
to sounds
that still reach
for something,
long after the
last note decays

after being away for so

after being away for so
long, a new album
arrives
from the artist
formerly known as
new love or our
infatuation.
i don’t wonder
if you’re listening
to it, nor which track
has had the most plays.
something so meant
to be shared
shouldn’t be listened
to alone

ashtray-blackandwhitebreast-

ashtray-blackandwhitebreast-
cigarettegirlgreen
is the title
of an album lost somewhere
along Interstate 40
when we were running
away from the rest of our
lives. you pulled it from
the trunk of that old Rabbit
which we knew would never
make it any further than
Nashville, but surprised
us instead, rolling into
Albuquerque. i can’t really
say if we escaped in the
end, but being here with
you, with those confident
chords
kicking in, traps
me all over again

on the safer side

on the safer side
of the tracks, we sit
chewing on forty-five-
cent wings, feigning
powerlessness, half-
hugging our guitars
for entitlement.
there is no right
nor wrong way to
write albums that could
encourage mass
suicide, but
experience is a
sure disciplinary
measure

on day 105, we pulled out

on day 105, we pulled out
the cliché of
faded photographs
and pretended
that the clear
sheath
could protect
us from our most
recent shedding, that
it would be a strong
enough barrier to
grief. for an entire
morning, we could
not even finish
the first of
eight solid albums, our
pickup suddenly
so worn
