I went to see Bill Callahan

Pink smoke stacks
mirroring the tired sun.
Gradient sky
signals the day is done.

Studying skeletons
to know the flesh.
To reach the living
we navigate the dead.

The mountains mark my home;
but from here all I see
is the green river valley:
I search low for a mountain top.

I ash along the trail
to mark the way back.
I pray the still wind remains
so to not blow my path away.

A Doctor and a Locksmith

.

I bought a hat right away

because I heard it gets windy where we’re going.

I wanted something to hold on to

in case of the breeze.

.

But when for some reason you spoke about the sky

(which you promised me was blue beyond the fog)

I briefly turned my head that way,

and I barely noticed the wind

as it blew my hat away.

added some verses to one of my favourite songs, Some Velvet Morning…

 .

Some velvet morning when I’m straight

I’m going to open up your gate

and maybe tell you about Phaedra

and how she gave me life,

and how she made it end.

Some velvet morning when I’m straight.

 .

Flowers growing on the hill

Dragonflies and daffodills

Learn from us

Very much

Look at us

But do not touch

Phaedra is my name.

 .

Only to dear Phaedra could I lie

For she never once asked me why

As I calmly set fire to everything I held dear

to the flowers on the hill.

Only to dear Phaedra could I lie.

 .

"Falling is the essence of a flower"

She said to me in our final hour.

I watched her pedals fall slowly into the passing breeze

Blowing away from me

Falling is the essence of a flower.
