tricks…

you grow tired…sleepy from nothing done…a whole day of accomplishing nothing…might watch the news…some religious network…a minister with brown sideburns talkin’ ‘ bout the second coming of Jesus…telling thousands…maybe millions that the Lord is coming back in anger…a wrath…that’s what he said…you just listen…

and you look out at trees…parked cars that have been there for days…never moving…abandoned…left for someone to steal…or just left behind as the owners traveled South for winter to work in orange fields…or picking grapefruit…leaving their northern blues behind…far behind…

takes so much outta ya’…just grow tired from doing nothing…nothing but thinking up strange coincidences…making up stories based on seen objects…or people walking on sidewalks in the rain…going nowhere…going nowhere…

you turn ’round again and they’re gone…they are gone…
