      name your price



after work i pull my van in
toys all strewn about the yard
i rub a spot into the window
and see that your car’s gone

i lock the door to the basement
it’s like a little game
and hug my vice by the drywall
where your face is framed

tears i've found
going against the crowd
will ease my sound
falling against the ground

i take a walk with my secret
you think you know it too
i hide and you seek it
i keep a lot from you
because i like the way she moves
when she’s in my vein
and i love to take her home
i think she feels the same

fighting stairs for my freedom
far, fanciful, fray
rising floors, failing railings
in the usual way
i like the way she says my name
and the way she smiles
but you know to feel the same
i stick with her a while

awake, aware? no. who i am?
a grin, a carpet scar
with heavy mind, a merry man
another over par
and the way she shies above
it isn't always right
in spite of what she lacks in love
i’ll stay with her tonight


from Against the Ground, released April 14, 2017
