In their own way

They lived a low life

in their own way

they took a chance

being content without contention

nameless graves

your ashtrays empty yet

never a word against me

I miss the faces of those I’ve never had the courage to go see

In your own way

you made a bold move

sleeping at my place

dreaming of your mother’s room

spending money on trains and

Paris never taught you anything

but a language that you tried

so hard to love

until I told you to give up

In our own way

we lived the sweet life

watching the paint

letting our feet dry

after walks in the rain No-

vember afternoons

you said “there’s thousands of alleys

that’ll never see our frozen breath rise

or the oceans

that separate us”


from Jonathan, CA, released October 24, 2013
