You’re always giving, my therapist said.
You have to learn how to take. Whenever
you meed a woman, the first thing you do
is lend her your books. You think she’ll
have to see you again in order to return them.
But what happens is, she doesn’t have the time
to read them, & she’s afraid if she sees you again
you’ll expect her to talk about them, & will
want to lend her even more. So she
cancels the date. You end up losing
a lot of books. You should borrow hers.
I was swimming across the sky
Clouds and angels by my side
Then I realized that I was lonely
And it wasn’t such a good thing
I was flying in paradise
In that ocean of dead lights
I was looking for your smile in the wind
But there was nobody there this morning
