No Blues, (Please) Refrain

I cannot tell a lie (baby)
but when I chop the cherry tree down
there ain't no sound

I travel faster than the speed of light (baby)
I'll be back before I'm gone

Double Negative Blues

I got no salt on my egg
no sugar in my coffee
or butter on my bread
but I don't give a damn
...'cause I a'int a'int got you

Not Much To Ask

She wipes her tears away
a soft fold of white tat
lace doesn’t daub well
merely smears the sadness
she feels, has always felt

She’d rather it rain down
blow a hole inside her soul
hollow out the echoes once again
blues – nothing but blues wash her
away to find lost paradise

Early My Light

Late autumn hot
unique humid
sea breezes in-land
colors still ablaze
I a burnt copper
in setting gold sun
reflections, perfect blues.

The leaves outside my window
couldn’t be more red, more red
than I have ever seen.

The sky above my head
couldn’t be more blue
yet less blue than I am now.
