Haven't Fancied Time in a Long Time, Now

Haven't Fancied Time in a Long Time, Now

A Poem by Elephants & Coyotes

I haven't an empty,
Dead-weight thought
For racing cracks
Of yesterday -

Cracks that split
Faster than crooks

Spinning in
Red-paced, 
Screaming lights,


--


Times ago,
Are times I know,
Only in now's
That never end,


And times to come
Are simply from
Times, the same as
Now and Then,


So, when I spend
Hours within
The greenest greens, 
Glowing near
Bashing violets,


Or dance with
The street,
Feet locked in repeat -
Communion
With dirt red brick,


You'll know why these things,
Tickle my wings,
And why I choose

Now,

As my
Sweetly,

Forever.
