I'm gonna choose to be happy.
I'm gonna choose to be in love.
These quiet gears of regret in the body
I fear like blanks in a gun.

I can't tell a soul how it was
to feel the bookmarks of time
made of blood red skies
Or how her voice was burned in my head
like the image burn of a camera flash.
Or what
force carried what mass from the start of things
landed her there
against my arm,

but I'm gonna to choose to be happy,
and I'm wise enough to choose to be in love.
These quiet gears of regret in the body
Become blanks in a gun.

I can't tell my brother what it is
to see one's self, to be absurd
or to have walked her, hand in hand,
through all the places ghosts go
when they
can find no sleep.
I have to think they
think back to souls they've held

when flesh begins to feel,
when my senses take her in,
when her hair takes shape,
when the freckles on her back
come to me through these eyes,
when the impressions she left
found their rest in some naked corner,

where my memories lie,
became part of me...

Now i contain more of what lies outside.
