Sometimes They Write Themselves

Today’s words from The Sunday Whirl:

never, machine, groove, lounge, symbol, now,
couch, card, cushion, collide, grave, grind, volume
(A baker’s dozen)

 Recalcitrant Time Machine Blues

They asked me if there was somehow
to cushion the news for you.
Never Machine. Never Machine.
You were a Groove-lounge symbol, now
they’re singing the blues for you.
Never Machine. Never Machine.

You never thought that the party would end
but your whole act depended on volume and grind.
You can dance in the present just so long. The piper
wants more than your thanks for his time.

You ask me if I’ll force the Fates
to turn back the clock for you.
Never Machine. Never Machine.

You were passed out on the couch
when your luck flew away like a bird.
When your past and your future collide
such a grave card to hold.
Never Machine.
Never Machine.
