The Head Throb Heart Like

from Twin Chimney by Brendan Codey



when the calls came in you heard them ring a hundred times
'cause you knew the game of gloom and doom would do
she climbed the stairs
she saw you there
went off to separate rooms
you'd missed that brief moment
that rush,
to the hall,
to the world
that guy she met was not a threat but a culprit
he'd arrived at throwing himself from a bully pulpit
you call the stranger who considers himself a business
but you don't even notice all the kids are all playing with matches

you arrive to find an empty but bustling station
looking up you think of rewards for your extensive patience
you run into that girl that you met that one time out in Morristown
but all she remembers is telling you to put her drink down
No you won't understand the half glamourous somethings in brooklyn
how they seem insecure but at least they're rich, broken, and open
you might struggle for months and then not risk enough as you sit there
thinking what the fuck happened and telling yourself that you're sincere

oh who can you call?
when you were out riding somewhere?
but nobody knew where the fuck you were
and you couldn't make anyone listen
you read from a library book
and the tears on your face aren't from laughter
but from the instant you lost your faith in the kitchen
