Lust For Kicks

Hes got his plastic sneakers
Shes got her robuck purse
Hes got his butane flicker
Shes got it worse
Chorus
Theyre crazy about each other
Like a misplaced fix
Theyre mad about each other
They blame it all on the lust for kicks
Hes got his own dumb waiter
Shes reading one fell swoop
He gets around to it later
She fills the scoop
Chorus
Hes just a hit parader
Shes just a cycle ride
He likes to masquerade her
And she tells him lies
Chorus

A Poet Got Lost In His Own Poetry

A poet got lost in his own poetry
And could not find his way out
Instead he went deeper and deeper
Into the world of his own self- reflection-

Lost
He nonetheless continued to move
Poem after poem
Deeper and farther and longer and older
More and more lost-

A poet got lost in his own poetry
And never got out-

Hes Got A Secret

(v. peterson)
Susanna
Oh, there he goes
Everybodys watching
Everybody knows
Somethings going on
It certainly shows
When hes got a secret for you
Its there when he walks
Its there when he smiles
He kisses your cheek
And disappears for a while
Nothing in the worlds
Gonna cramp his style
If only he could keep it from you
Oh, I dont believe that
You havent seen by now (seen by now)
Dont look at me
cause Ill never tell
Dont you ever wonder
Why the phone always rings (phone always rings)
Seven-thirty-one
Every evening (every evening)
Doesnt it upset you
When you call his name
And he doesnt pay attention to you.
Oh, I dont believe that
You havent seen by now (seen by now)
Dont look at me
cause Ill never tell
Dont know the places he goes
Dont know the people he knows
Dont you understand
Its out of your hands
Oh i, dont believe that
You havent seen by now (seen by now)
Dont look at me
cause Ill never tell

Hes Got Something

(samwell / lynch)
Hes got something
I dont know what but its grand
I can feel it each time he touches my hand
When we walk
When we talk
Yeah
I feel so fine
Hes got something
And its mine, all mine
Hes got something
I feel it each time we kiss
And he thrills me
Each time he holds me like this
When we part
Breaks my heart
I miss him so
Hes got something
Only lovers know
Hes got something
Its so fine
Hes got something
Mine, all mine
Hes got something
I miss him so
Hes got something
Only lovers know
Yeah
Hes got something
I dont know what but its grand
I can feel it each time he touches my hand
When we walk
When we talk
Yeah
I feel so fine
Hes got something
And its mine, all mine
When we part
Breaks my heart
Yeah
I miss him so
Hes got something
Only lovers know
Hes got something only lovers know, oh

The man with too much love for his own good

I love the sound of the rain hitting against the window
just comming down
not stopping
I love sitting here listening to it
its trying to get us
it keeps comming down
trying
but it cant
it cant get through,
listen.
Its powerful
but its not powerful enough.
It could be?
If the man upstairs cried enough?
If he got off his high horse and realised what this world- his world has become?
He could drown us all
he could make us realise
he could make
us do something
if he cried,
we could stop crying
you could,
couldnt you?
I dunno about that?
But I would never let you drown
I would never let anyone get to you
especially God.
I would slice them all,
I would.
But I won't need to cause no one knows we are here
except him,
God.
he knows,
but he can't get to us
no one can
cause the doors locked
and your mine.

She Misses Him On Sunday The Most

(steven dale jones/bobby tomberlin)
They were quite a pair
The way that love should be
They still held hands
For the world to see
Shes thankful that she had him all those years
But she still has days she cant hold back the tears
She misses their monday night bowling league
When theyd wear their matching shirts
She misses their wednesday night dinner out
As soon as he got home from work
And saturday morning sleeping late
Holding each other close
But she misses him on sunday the most
She sits alone on that same old pew again
His tenor voice still echoes now and then
It brings back all those memories of him there by her side
What shed give for one more sunday drive
She misses their monday night bowling league
When theyd wear their matching shirts
She misses their wednesday night dinner out
As soon as he got home from work
And saturday morning sleeping late
Holding each other close
But she misses him on sunday the most
But she misses him on sunday the most

Hes Got A Hold On Me

(nik kershaw)
Producer for bonnie: nik kershaw
No matter how hard I try
No matter how many days go by
I really cant make this feeling go away
Whenever I change my mind
Whenever I turn my head around
The only one I can see every single day
Hes got a hold on me
Nothing I can say
Nothing I can do
Hes got a hold on me
And pretty soon he may
Have a hold on you
Whenever hes somewhere else
I try to remember if I can
When if only I could forget
I think Id be just fine
I wonder where he came from
I wonder what name he answers to
Whatever he calls himself
Id like to call him mine
Hes got a hold on me
Nothing I can say
Nothing I can do
Hes got a hold on me
And pretty soon he may
Have a hold on you
It could be my low resistance
And you can all be as smug as hell
But you all better keep your distance
Unless you wanna get burnt as well
Whenever he walks on by
And looks at me then I know
That he is never letting go
Hes got a hold on me
Nothing I can say
Nothing I can do
Hes got a hold on me
And pretty soon he may
Have a hold on you

Unattended and left to be on his own

Morning
Dad gets up what time
I have no idea
Mom gets up to get busy
In the kitchen

All moving here and there
Dad gets ready
Starts his bike with a kick
Mom climbs up on its back
With a huge bag
Carrying lunch for both

Both wave hands
And the same sentence
“Stay good and eat in time”
And they leave

A grandma at home
Always on bed
Most of the time sleeping
Rest coughing
At times I run to help her
With a glass of water or to
Fetch her medicines

She is, in fact, at home
To take care of me

No one at home to feed me
I eat, on my own, the rice
Kept in casserole at my reachable height
I finish eating with
Food paste smeared all over my body

I do not know what
Other children do at home
When left alone like this

I do not know when this
Struggle of mine will end
Maybe, when I am put in a
Boarding school

I will grow big like my dad
Study well and get a job
But, am determined to marry
Only that woman, who will not
Go for work and
Take care of her kid
Not the one like my mother
Who leaves her kid at home
Unattended and
To be on his own

Shot With His Own Gun

How does it feel now youve been undressed
By a man with a mind like the gutter press
So disappointed to find its no big sin
Lying skin to skin
Chorus:
Shot with his own gun
Now dad is keeping mum
Shot with his own gun
Now somebody has to pay for the one who got away
Whats on his mind now is anyones guess
Losing his touch with each caress
Spending evry evening looking so appealing
He comes without warning
Leaves without feeling
Chorus
On your marks, man, ready, set
Lets get loaded and forget
The little corporal got in the way
And he got hit by an emotional ricochet
Its a bit more now than dressing up dolly
Playing house seems so melancholy
Chorus
Oh its too sad to be true
Your blue murders killing you

Each Poet Is A Solitary Voice Sounding His Own Alone Through The Universe

EACH POET IS A SOLITARY VOICE SOUNDING HIS ALONE THROUGH THE UNIVERSE

Each poet is a solitary voice sounding his own alone through the universe
Each one writes what only he or she can
No one is the other and all for anyone else
We come into the world alone
And we die alone
And we are poets – alone

Yet what we dream alone
Is nonetheless what no alone can ever give
A kind of love and recognition
An affirmation of who we are
A blessedness
That may once have been had in our mother's love
But which in our long slow years
Can never fully come again.

I loved a woman once
And she seemed to love me
I knew then
There is Eternity.

Now in my old age
I also need love
A poet is alone
And only G-d above.

Hes Got You

I got the picture that you gave to me
And its signed with love, just like it used to be
The only thing different, the only thing new
I got the picture, hes got you
I got the records that we used to share
And they still sound the same, as when you were here
The only thing different, the only thing new
I got the records, hes got you
I got your memory, or has it got me?
I really dont know, but I know it wont let me be
I got your class ring that proves you care
And it still looks the same as when you gave it dear
The only thing different, the only thing new
I got these little things, hes got you
I got your memory, or has it got me?
I really dont know, but I know it wont let me be
I got the picture that you gave to me
And its signed with love, just like it used to be
The only thing different, the only thing new
I got these little things, hes got you

His Own Image

I am alone
As cold as stone

- I’m going to leave you forever -
Sooner than you think

- Never wanted to be together -
I fetch the mirror from the sink

I say that I’m sorry, on the edge of insane
I’m not that crazy, don’t you call me that name
Just take a look in the mirror, we’re one and the same
You cannot live on without me, and I’m not to blame
You don’t want to see me get angry, I’ve not yet begun
You smash that mirror, and I’ll grab my gun

What have I done?

Where are you? Why don’t you answer me anymore?
Surely that’s not you lying upon the floor?

I don’t want to be here anymore
So I walk over her, and lock the door
One black moment, she’s gone without trace
Naught but my echo, remains in her place
I thought that I saw her, but she had my face
A cold wet scarlet mass is all I embrace

One last look out the window
One last look at my hands
One last look in the mirror

God created man
In His own image
And woman from man

To Each His Own

To each his own its plain to see
To walk alone you have to be
Its all for you and all for me, youll see
Im gonna miss you, yes, I will
No matter who you are, Ill love you still
For my life is my conscience, the seeds I sow
I just wanted to let you know
Familiar faces that Ive seen
Turnin red and turnin green
They just got caught with writing on their sleeve, I guess Ill leave
Im gonna miss you, yes, I will
No matter who you are, Ill love you still
Will you cancel my papers and lock the door
Cause I aint gonna be round no more
Will I make it through the summer
Breaking ties with the old and new
Losing one just gains another
There is nothing I can do
Im gonna miss you, yes, I will
No matter who you are Ill love you still
For my life is my conscience, the seeds I sow
And I just wanted to let you know
Im gonna miss you, yes, I will
No matter who you are, Ill love you still
Will you cancel my papers and lock the door
Cause I aint gonna be round no more
Im gonna miss you, yes, I will
No matter who you are Ill love you still
For my life is my conscience, the seeds I sow
And I just wanted to let you know
Im gonna miss you ...

A Man Alone Is Only His Own Death

A MAN ALONE IS ONLY HIS OWN DEATH

A man alone is only his own death
Who gives nothing to the generations to come
What does he give?
What has his life been for?
A man alone as far he goes
Goes nowhere.
Even if they worship his dust
His dust is just dust,
And his life has been death also.

His Own World

A thoughtful man alone
Alone in his own world
World of chaos and destruction
Destruction happens second nature
Nature bared stands no chance
Chance to get the chance he needs
Needs to learn to live a life
Life brings it's own reward
Reward the thief and charge the victim
Victim is the word for loss
Loss causes a greater gain
Gain the end of a long hard race
Race has nothing to do with colors
Colors swirl around his head
Head back to one and look to two
Two is the number for second place
Place the loser on the stand
Standing alone is a thoughtful man

His Own Small Store

he's just an old man...
working behind the counter
of his own small store
for forty years...

the young toughs
kept robbing him...
grabbing stuff off the shelves
and running...

threatening him,
and the old woman...
till they lived in fear
day and night...

then they went too far!
coming across the counter
and grabbing him by the collar:
'give me the money, old man! '

quick, and sudden,
the gunshot rings out...
the young tough falls
to the floor in a
puddle of blood...

now the old man's going to court
for excessive use of force,
and an unregistered handgun...

to the halls of justice,
sterile and cold...
the stench of dignity dying
fills the air...

and the hands on the clock
cant be turned back!

In His Own Way

I feel I’m in heaven when
I hear that music, Father said,
Sitting in the chair in the garden,
Recovering from some old illness,
Hearing the Couperin organ masses
Playing through the open window
From your old black and red hi-fi
Record player. He was nearer to
Heaven than he thought, cancer
Was creeping through him like a
Silent snake. He didn’t go much on
Your Ornette Coleman’s alto runs
And tweaks of free jazz; what racket’s
That he’d say, trying to snooze in the
Afternoon sun, his companion Death
Lingering by, waiting for him in his
Own time to die. The garden’s empty
Now; his chair vacated, no more of
Couperin organ masses or Coleman’s
Free jazz playing out from an open
Window on a summer’s day, just birds
Singing nature songs across the way.

My Path (...Realized By His Own Hand)

Either you were deceiving yourself then,
Or you are now; which is more believable, when
You consider that your heart spoke all this time,
Until you allowed the deceit that now dwells in your weary mind?
Shame on you for all your deceit, and for placing blame here!
Take control of all your actions, and do not live in fear!
I have been threatened (idly) with bodily harm, -
Called a freak, and labeled crazy, etc., all because of the charm
With which you have allowed yourself and others to believe
All the lies and associated emotions your fragile mind can conceive!
This shall go on no more, and be allowed no longer;
For, the power of your delusional divergence is strong-but, I am stronger!
My Path was Ordained by God Himself, and Realized by His Own Hand,
It converges upon Your Path wholly, not by want or need, but by His Own Command!

-Maurice Harris,12 February 2012

Each To His Own

Nothing can be permanent
Nothing set in stone
Never try to fool yourself
That you are not alone
Know your place dont chance your arm
Your secrets are all known
Never cross the great divide
Each to his own
Dont misunderstand me, dont be hurt, dont take offence
But what I am about to tell you makes a lot of sense
Ive been more than happy with you, loved you as you are
But being happy only takes a restless heart so far
Be thankful for the past but know those times wont come again
I found you quite diverting, even tender now and then
Remember I will always be the first to sing your praise
But I must close the book on our adolescent days
Nothing can be permanent
Nothing set in stone
Never try to fool yourself
That you are not alone
Know your place dont chance your arm
Your secrets are all known
Never cross the great divide
Each to his own
Did you really think wed never drift apart?
That wed decay together in some endless heart to heart
Did you never realise that we are not the same?
We are made what we are made - you are not to blame
Nothing can be permanent
Nothing set in stone
Never try to fool yourself
That you are not alone
Know your place dont chance your arm
Your secrets are all known
Never cross the great divide
Each to his own
