Exit Strategy

from Getting High by Jonathan Burks



Exit Strategy

leaves are getting thin
out there on the limb
you can see the landscape
in all its naked heartache

full force of the wind
cutting thru my chin
sand of my glass jaw
rolling thru the back door

mind on the prize
nose to the grind
head in the clouds
boat on the brine
I'm owning this moment
victory is mine
hands on the plow
toes on the line

moving on what's next
charging up my steps
goosebumps are my map quest
follow my excitement

shattered like a glass floor
picking up my slack jaw
no stitch left to hem haw
you don’t get what you don’t ask for

resistance is fertile
friction grows the flame
furrows on my brow
glisten with gasoline

the tiger needs an eyepatch
since I grabbed my groove back
goddamn I got a deep scratch
nothing gonna salve that
