You unravelled

With the speed of a dancing pinecone, landed on your feet
and you searched for
the nearest town where
no one knew you, no one knew

How you like your pancake batter,
and that you hate climbing ladders in the dark

I would love to be your lover, but I'm sensing the disaster
even as I'm looking at you through this drink

You keep rows of notepads, and black berets for all your pretend games
Balance your ideas on a tightrope, and make them jump so you know, just so you know...

I've got my arms around this table, please remove them if you're able,
I'm not free

We've got our arms around each other, right now nobody else matters
and I don't care if I'm writing future grief
