Track Name: New Ends
Thick summer air
softened the streetlights.
On warm nights
I’d make up
new ends
to all the old tales.

Some midnights cold
the sirens would fright me.
The crows in
the alley
would wake me
many mornings.
Track Name: That Summer
Billy was certain he'd heard something.
I said, "they're not back till Monday; it's nothing."
We'd taken a bottle to my Uncle's on Oak Street,
and kissed in their kitchen like summer's forever.

We talked about college or moving to Boston,
but something I said made him suddenly sullen.
We argued and he said, "you're ruining this moment."
I sat on the back porch, he slept in their guest bed.
