WSP 149 Graceland Hill

lyrics

on mushrooms in the moonlight
twenty-five years ago
I knew you for the first time
your head beaming rivers of gold

heavy frozen branches
bursting silent and still
halo round your frame
throwing light down
on Graceland Hill

when I was a kid
winter brought lost wind and flight
thin plastic spaceships
sailing on physics and ice

into the cold
we climbed to catch that thrill
one with the now
zooming down
Graceland Hill

innocence lost
experience awkwardly won
your hands told mine
how to finish what didn't get done

headlights grabbed our shadows
and tossed them into the chill
cold dark relief
of the backseat
at Graceland Hill

about

Jonathan Burks Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro"

here's some pro tips:

1) Keep a scream journal. Scream into a camera or microphone at least once a day. Any word or sound will work. "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK" seems to work for me.

2) Dance for 5 minutes daily. Dance on the way to the bathroom or kitchen. Dance as ugly as you can.

3) Make funny faces. Sit in front of a mirror and get strange.
