Ignoto Ego

Up Above the Sea & Coming and Going on Easy Terms

Up Above the Sea

the sun came up
up above the sea
the streaming clouds
tore into my tranquility

out my window
I could see
a bird drop down
on the branches of my apple tree

everyday the bluebird comes down
and stares at me for hours
can’t figure out if he brings me luck
or if he’s trying to tear me down

I bought a rifle
with a bushnell scope
knowing the answer would be
to see if he’s calm or frightful

the sun rose up
over the sea
I staked out and waited
like so many gunmen before me

everyday the bluebird comes down
and stares at me for hours
can’t figure out if he brings me luck
or if he’s trying to tear me down

he saw my gun, he stared
right into my eyes, I fired
his body exploded
and feathers fell all over my lawn

Coming and Going on Easy Terms

window seats on bullet trains
smear land into sky
fear and sorrow coalesce

now I’m trying to find that quiet place
where living is breathing
not knowing is understanding
coming is going
but my heart just beats faster and faster

they asked for me to come
and identify my son
but my son is alive

the life that whispered in my ear
is gone gone gone
window seats, commuter trains
send me headlong

trying to find that quiet place
where living is breathing
not knowing is understanding
coming is going
but my heart just beats faster and faster

they asked for me to come
and identify my son
but my son is alive
in maharishi oblivion

the love that counted back
from ten is gone gone gone
fear and sorrow coalesce

now I’m trying to find that quiet place
where living is breathing
not knowing is understanding
coming is going
but my heart just beats faster

when I got down to the morgue
they pulled back the slab
it wasn’t my son
I wasn’t his dad

they covered him up
I smiled I smiled
the past is cities from a train

now I’m trying to find that quiet place
where living is breathing
not knowing is understanding
coming is going
but my heart just beats faster.
