The Ericks and Melanies - Picture Show
Time is tall as trees we sit in
looking for some bones to fit in
empty words to sticky notions
poetry for familiar motions
pen-strokes waiting to catch our faces
sort them into fashion places
here we hang our knuckles white
cause from up here things seem alright
