words and music by vanessa lowe
produced by kent sparling
© and p. 2012 the jicama salad company (BMI)


all of the lines on the page are connecting
converging in silence
saving a space
nothing of history inks up a paper
like motives and mischief
sorrow and strife

you write a word and you can’t find another
behind even over or under the first
but something is bathing in white
hidden by parallel bars the characters fight it out

they live and die in the dark
move beneath the shadows on the paper of the pen

and you don’t believe what you write
can’t conceive of it
a separate life for every idea
whether or not you notice it

bravery sneaks into fortresses
following footsteps whose imprints
are barely a thought
gathering breadcrumbs listening for distant drums
hoping to find the one under the pulp
cause something is living in the crease
waiting to make the reveal
when you make it real


from Stars of Bean Hollow, released September 25, 2012
