Second Time Around

This is the first new thing I’ve written in almost a year.

Second Time Around

I will wander barren wastelands
Unpack your Homegoods shit and hang it on the wall
Fell the thickest deepest forest
Drive the kids down to the shopping mall

I will go and slay your dragon
Fetch your coffee from the kitchen down the hall
Climb the highest steepest mountain
Bring your pots and plants in come the Fall

Then rest with you
Lie in comfort in your arms here

I’ll swim the wildest raging river
Wash the towels and clean the shower stall
Cross a thousand arid deserts
Make sure your laptop gets the latest install

Rest your head against my shoulder
Take my hand in yours and squeeze it nice and tight
Save a little bit of Heaven
A little bit of peace until the morning

So I might know
And I might fly away with you from here
On this second time around

I’ll pick up tickets for the Wednesday Powerball
On this second time around
