don’t play this out like you always do
cause let me tell you honey
i trust you as much as myself
and i am a goddamn liar.
Summer may have come for us
with dead leaves in its pockets
but we were the ones who set ourselves up
to believe rain falls upwards
and that books can tell time.
So be a novelty if you wish
and scatter this colored sand
on dry land
but know it won’t do you any good –
88 keys will turn blue and green
and Santa will finally smile
