i found  out that [she] cares, as [she] walked out the  door,

tonight, and

i found out  that the moon is only about  as big as my thumb, when i hold it up to the sky,

tonight, and

i found out that the  wind gives you cold kisses every time you step outside lately,,

,

and that the trees aren’t green at night, they are black and silent, and

i found out that the  leaves will crackle for me just loud enough for me when i am on the  right  path home, just to let me know ,

tonight, and

i found out that i can smile and frown at once, as long as one of them stays hidden [but which one??,?,] and, tonight, i found out that the

train tracks make sweet harmonies

(steel rail choir miles and  miles of singing, measuring voices and songs by the  distance it takes for the last sound to float off, what kind of math is that, and Goethe laughs and jots down a line or two,but you’ll never know about what)

it might sing her to sleep, too, if she  listens, she doesn’t listen, except to herself,

[confusing, confused, might as well try writing only in shades of blue, that’ll get ’em]

and did you know that your ears hear exactly what you want to hear, when your mouth can say exactly what you want to say? i didn’t, until tonight

you don’t know her, and neither do i, although i thought  i did, back when i thought i could think, i thought  i knew her but  i didn’t and so every now and then, Full Moons mean full heads and thoughts about thoughts about memories about thinking about  things when thinking meant smiling and waking up in the morning was a pleasure and not a chore

but oh well oh well buck up buck rogers the  night is young and the moon is out and tonight

tonight

tonight

your thumb is as big as the  moon, and the wind kisses you, and

the trains sing you to sleep, with whispers in your ears,

— just what you want to hear,
