Red & Black

if I paint the skyline
too close, and
force red and black
to define the pathways
you weave in the sky,
throw my paintbrush
to earth. sometimes
i bind myself to it
too closely.
one foot in front
of the other, begin
with a single

No need to bother with the last five minutes of this one.  Unless you’re really bored or find it soothing.

  1. Was that “Super surgery.” or “Super century.” in the song? Either way, I don’t get it. What’s the point and meaning of the song again? L❤️ve you lots, Luke! H❤️gs!

    1. It’s “supersymmetry”. 🙂 I know it’s kind of a weird song. It was stuck in my head at the time, and I do like that one line: “if telling the truth is not polite, then I guess we’ll have to fight”. I try to have my song pairings make sense with the poem, but sometimes they’re just what I’m into at the time. XD


What say you, friend?
