Blind Man's WatchI worked another
Two hundred hours this week,
And I told you I just want your hands on my back.
I'm getting old for my age.
You untie my muscles,
Crack all my joints,
And I still get carded for cigarettes.
My knuckles are taped,
But I can still flick a lighter.
You say I really should quit.
"You're taking fifteen minutes off your life."
"I just hope they take it off the end"
I wasn't planning on using them anyway.
I ask if you remember
When nine years old was middle aged.
You roll your eyes and tell me
"Even the broken clock's right twice a day"
I thought I told you time was relative,
Ticks on a blind man's watch.
Only there because it calms him down.
I've got a watch that ticks underwater,
Just so I know how fast I'm drowning.
mechanici want to kiss every aching wound you have,
bandage your heart every time it bleeds,
and patch up your mind over and over
because not a single tear deserves to fall
from your brandy-drenched eyes
but this dripping heart of mine can only feel
and the healing honey words it flames get caught
in the back of my throat and on the roof of my mouth
so i only have these passionate guttural cries
to tell you that i care all too much
and in order to fix you up again,
i would need to tear myself to tatters
and trade all of my working parts
for your leftover, fading pieces
but i just haven’t figured out how.
