A Blink and a Breath

from Live at the New South Showcase by Joe Cat



The shadow of the train
made a strobe on the earth
That grew larger than life
a thousand words worth

Parallaxing land
confuses the brain
Eastern or Western
towards going or staying

It feels wide open, under Western skies
dreams look just like, the way we planned
And we pull in the driveway home
& In a Blink and a Breath, it’s all gone

A break in the heavens
points out on the scene
abandoned farm silos
and rusted machines

A place to be buried
on top of the land
Bleached by heat
From suns distant flame


from Live at the New South Showcase, released January 2, 2019
