What do we pretend to know?
The world moves so fast
And we’ve had new fears to contend with,
Being left on the wrong side of the road
Seeing everyone else having a good time,
And you’re still figuring out how
We found ourselves in this mess,
Pretending it was a party,
But it is a good world
If you can bear the raw velocity
Long enough to take a breath
Heart hardened and opened
At the same time
All now is love
Smile as we tiptoe through the trees
Looking for a shadow to kiss beneath,
My book Until She Sings is out now.
