Song 7583479

for Joseph Bradshaw

There’s a quality, that means to be

an endorsement, that’s speaking for us.

It is not shallow. It continues because

it’s tired of our sitting. It’s tired of the way

a year says it’s a year, in that kind of

generosity a year proclaims as a wash,

as a way to say, that’s it, sleep now

if you’re really as tormented as time allows.

Meanwhile, there’s naturalness and the merciful.

A column of happiness shaped like anyone

who’s undeniable to the feeling of something

that I might call this upright beginning.  

I want what amounts to an understanding.

The out of the way, the nothing we turn to.
