Sand Stuck in Sheets

from by The Deafening Colors



I hear billiards and skeeball when I close my eyes.
Invisible heat under clouds in the skies.
Alone on the boardwalk, I duck into stores to stay dry.

Well I feel bad for my friends who can't feel their reflections.
Sand stuck in sheets or their burning complexions.
September is coming so I guess you'll be going back home.

Dying leaves in the gutter drag across the street.
She promised me she'd stay.
Facing the wind blowing cooler and idly by.

I see lights on the water from the bridge's reflection.
A boat in the bay but the stars are gone tonight.
Silent and lonely in this beach town with vacancy signs.
