Disappear

I dragged my feet across a seat
Jumped out the passenger side
The only thing worth looking for
Is what you find inside

But that had not yet appeared
Lost invisible here.

Tel Aviv and Agadir
Tone deaf for almost

Before I learned to see
The vanishing point appeared.

I looked for you everywhere
I looked for you everywhere.

There is a calm I haven’t come to yet
I spent half my life figuring what comes next
I telescoped in I finally win
I finally win the prize

That now eyes see comets perfect timing squeeze
Head first fighting everything
The crushing force of memory
Erasing all I’ve been
The vanishing point appeared.

I looked for you everywhere.
I looked for you everywhere.
Tell me why you’re here.
I came to disappear.

Look at this face
Can you believe it?
Am I living in the beautiful vacuum?
Because I can’t see it
The vanishing point appears.

I looked for you everywhere.
I looked for you everywhere.
Tell me why you’re here.
I came to disappear.
Tell me why you’re here.
I came to disappear.
I came to disappear.

The Yellow Tulip

For weeks
it struggled
through the hard crust
of the spring earth
and a foot
of air

Just to be
scorched
by the sun
jolted
by raindrops
blasted
by the wind

But on this gentle
May morning
as it opens
yellow petals
to the sky
Nothing else matters
