Scattered in a Tree

No one looks both ways here
desolate grounds call for desolate hounds

Creatures of the night landscape 

Wait, up in the trees
a hint of jealousy
is swinging from a limb
tempting but i’ll pass good sir

Thank you for the invitation
thank you for the noose
Thank  you for the laceration
thank you for the truth

In from a morning jog is a bit of grief
a bitter leaf he is
a hiccup in the birth place of loss
everything is not about you
it’s about the dead
it’s about a souls extravaganza

a rush of blood to the neck
the head takes care of itself

Back from a vacation is relief
sweet relief
too smell like the Earth
and soothe like the sun

I remember you relief
in the end 
you’re a proper shoulder
the only one
who is there for me

The only one that cares
until I inhale temptation once again
falling right back down the stairs
