When I Wrote New Songs and You Would Listen Out of Friendship, by pd lyons


When I Wrote New Songs and You Would Listen Out of Friendship

Where we were always cool
By the reservoir
In the pines
Up some stairs tucked into angular corners
Warm winter kitchens smelling of gas
Down by the factories
Not sleeping all night
Into a morning crisp clean cold
On the back door landing
Three flights below the city without fear we knew

 

ever onward something goes

ever onward something goes
