illo from Le vieil homme et la fée


I was a quick wet boy, diving too deep for coins

all of your street light eyes wide on my plastic toys
then when the cops closed the fair, I cut my long baby hair
stole me a dog-eared map and called for you everywhere

have I found you
flightless bird, jealous, weeping or lost you, american mouth
Big pill looming

now I'm a fat house cat
cursing my sore blunt tongue
watching the warm poison rats
curl through the wide/white fence cracks

IRON & WINE, Flightless bird, American Mouth

Dressed up to the eyes
It's a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound
And as sleek as a shriek
Spinning round and round
Always take a big bite
It's such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It's Friday
I'm in love

I don't care if Monday is black
Tuesday Wednesday heart attack
Thursday never looking back
It's Friday I'm in love


Friday! Have fun (but not too much:-))

Gather ye rose-buds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today,
Tomorrow will be dying.
