Whereforto Ye Wanderers

Whereforto Ye Wanderers.

We live in such a tender spot
Our bellies all sewn up and exposed
the electric organ and dreamy shiny guitar-tone hum in the background
paper mache hearts tattooed on our sleeveless t-shirts similarly
our vulnerability ends up the same
our backs ache together
our records churn alike
we are betrayed by similar friends
our prehistoric chain smoking in underground outlets
our flat tires united forever,
our bitterness sweet---
Yet we have come here suspiciously alive
tired in need of coffee yet vivacious
cutting through boredom with a machete
our last grasp on essential componenents to attempt to be strewn together, patched up, palpitating in the sun,
will you follow?
