Rumors of tumors, chatty neighbors, the grateful dead
A broken swing on a deserted playground
And bones; oh, the bones that pile up, more everyday
Thursday I had nothing to say

A weak and pale moon glares down at the snow, impotent
Stars in motion whisper my star-name, calling
Tiny spiders build homes in my beer-soaked brain
Thursday I had nothing to say

Pizza or Chinese for dinner? I can't hold a thought
Craftsmanship went out on a three-hour cruise
Through the swamplands of South Carolina in the rain
Thursday I had nothing to say

A brass-toothed journeyer shines a light in dark corners
Nudges and pokes at the beasts sleeping there
Scraps of re-arranged words piled with the bones rot away
Thursday I had nothing to say
Thanks to :iconbrassteeth: [link] for the inspiration to get this damned thing written. Maybe I don't have anything to say, but I can't shut up.

cute. :) this comment makes me see you as a farmer with a hanky in his shirt pocket. wiping off the sweat of hard labor and then spitting and apologizing for doing so.

:) but your vice is not chewing and spitting, it's like mine. we smoke and contemplate the wonders of the world. inhale inspiration, exhale elation.

This is lovely, but I wish I had more context on the meaning behind/beneath it.

Thank you. I'd have to go line-by-line to explain it, though, and I feel that when one knows something intimately it loses something... like a song that becomes too familiar.
