Watching you walk away
Wonder what to say
Head down, tongue turned around, get back get back get back to your side of town
Before all natural language fails us,
Can’t we just say what we mean?

Casual happenstances
Carve me at my joints
I don’t want to chalk this up to some dumb hypothetical maxim of conversation
Branches grow and instincts falter
A phrase loquacious stuck

Birds and shit fly everywhere
Disappointment, I don’t care
Scream and shout, we’ll figure it out the next time
Lesson learned, another hat to wear
Hymen, semen, rocking chair
Close the door, no more lest you’re a mortician
In which case it’s gotta sound something like this

I said a-woah woah woah
You’re a hefty ho
Said a woah woah woah
Pillsbury dough
