In A Moment of Darkness

In a moment of darkness,
My heart hardens and
I take a bow.

The show is over;
The lights go down.

In a moment of darkness,
I step into the lake and
There I drown.

All We Dreamed Before Us

The open road and the traveler’s home.
We breathed in cigarette smoke
As we stepped in that old hotel room.
The desert dust and age-old monuments
Fresh in our minds, it was all we had
And all we dreamed before us.
It was life, it was love—it was wanderlust.

Wild Animal Way Out

The mountain lion licked me,
And the black bear bit me.
The wolf pack wanted me,
But the grizzly bear got me.
