The Rivers I Have Hidden From The Sea / 2011

Follow The Geography

Mt. Ranier rained fog
on my parade

San Diego blew, blustered,
flustered my best instincts

Pine Ridge poisoned my prairie footsteps
across bad lands bleeding Hepatitis C

Charlotte left lust not lipstick on my collar
as I lay in dawn's gutter

Dallas offered redemption
too wide to embrace for my sling-slung arms

Boston bled me of all my naiveté,
the Charles River flowing between who I was, who I would become
