off the greens

hiking 1


i’m off the greens
cuz that’s what love will do

gotta find a way to sleep
broke night, threw up a few

how’d i sleep before?
well, i’d sleep at 4
just in time to hear my demons snore

think i was meant to be a nightcrawler

somethin’ ’bout the night
that makes the world smaller.

somethin’ ’bout the world
that makes my mind wall up.

somethin’ ’bout my mind
that lets these thoughts crawl up,

they lay eggs, and stay fed
they’ll eat ’til i’m brain-dead

i can’t sleep, i can’t dream
i-stare-at-the-ceiling

i need some greens,
i think i’ll order more

order more
and let myself ignore
the fact that i was off the greens
for just a day or two

broke night, threw up a few

guess that’s the best
that my love can do

“off the greens”
