Going Nowhere

Land of the free

Home of the brave

That’s what I’ll tattoo

On my naked nave


Let me fly

Let me roam the earth

A stranger in costume

With a wide geographical berth


Spread these wings

Meet the wind

Cross the oceans

Cradle in


Sing a new tune

Write a song

Fuck strangers

All night long


Run the marathon

To nowheresville

Then die a happy girl

On an empty hill

  1. I was liking this through the first three stanzas, and then that fourth stanza! Wow, that made me smile in pleasant surprise. I didn’t know you had that in you. 🙂
    I loved the idea of you being happy the rest of your days, though, most of all.
