sum of all parts they say 'get over it kid, move on' as if you could erase a human bond somebody left a mark across your heart like graffiti on a moving box car and everywhere you go you pick up more how you tip your hat or hold your fork and your muscles remember it all your worry in your shoulders and your fear in your jaw we are the sum of all parts sum of all our broken hearts never get over we never get over it only hurts less cerebellum inside of your skull the ancient part of you that knows the fall it keeps your balance, calculates the risk of running straight up a mountain or straight down it there is no way to fill the hole inside when someone that you love leaves you behind but you've got pockets full of good luck charms a sharp intuition and good strong arms

Moose 03:50
Moose Along the Tree Line All the tattoos I never got, I’ve got a book full of them. Having no spine its pages lost and left behind. I met a young moose along the tree line, his antlers covered in blood. He looked at me, inside the truck as though I had seen something of intimacy. I know you’re shedding a skin and you’re in my thoughts for a reason.

derelict barn the snow drifts up against the door the roof is falling through the floor been caving in before our eyes since boarded up in 85 she had a dream the night before she saw him standing over her he said the blame was on his hands when she awoke she knew her son was dead it's not for me to understand it's not for me to understand god said it's not for me to understand the rifle that he kept inside the barn the way he took her hand, the way he smoked cigars, his disappointment with the world war two when told to stay at home and work the farm she went alone inside the room she wailed and wailed two hours time when she emerged she was a rock the children wept into her skirt it's not for us to understand it's not for us to understand she said it's not for us to understand the snow drifts up against the door the roof is falling through the floor been caving in before our eyes since boarded up in 85

Falcon Someday I will be a falcon, not just any other bird. I won’t be afraid of money, I’ll always have a room and board. Pick a card from the stack, Woman of the Pentagons with a Falcon on her shoulder, a bunch of grapes in her palm. Man around the campfire cries We’re not dying when we go! He was a priest, now a vendor selling tickets at the show. Smoke went straight up past Orion Songs of wolves drowned out by cellos Someday I will be a falcon, not just any other bird. I won’t be afraid of love or any other ardent word. Pick a card from the stack, Scorpion comes your way riding in on horseback with an offer to make. Michael takes someone’s hand, disappears in the dark and the children fall asleep to the rhythm of the stars. Smoke went straight up past Orion Songs of wolves drowned out by cellos Smoke went straight up past Orion Violins and sweet packed pipes Someday I will be a falcon, not just any other bird. I won’t be afraid of falling in or out of any world.

Roocoocoo 04:06
Roocoocoo I built a miniature house I scattered seeds on the ground I tied a red bow around So that which was lost could be found And if I knew your song I wouldn't hear another song, I wouldn't fly in frenzied patterns as I do Roocoocoo I built a feeder tall In climbed a hummingbird Fed on my jewelweed and salvia, left without saying a word Kingbirds are too territorial Catbirds go slinking around Song Sparrow's all the day singing, makes his next in a hole in the ground If I had the voice of a thrasher or the wingbeat of a dove A snowy owl's feathered coat The eye of red-tailed hawk And if I knew your song.. And if I knew your song I wouldn't hear another song, I wouldn't fly in frenzied patterns as I do Roocoocoo
