Timeless (for P.L.)


It’s going so fast
Can’t possibly last
My memory, I mean
I don’t like change so
It’s great to forget

Now I’ve the engine for it
Little switch in my skull
Like there’s a television up there
Right in the middle of the brain box
Lots of shows: animals, trains
Mother and the kids
I watch, laugh, cry
But sometimes I just get static
Grey fuzz that leaves me hungry

Often feel I’m in two places
Staying there and being here
Still it makes life happier
Waiting for that sunny day
I don’t worry, I don’t care
Don’t know who, can’t find where
Except that room with food

But I can recall you, friend
That we were friends
That we were
Now I just am
