“Long Lines” – Song By: Ronnie and Heather Whitley Gibson

outside the cost of cutting trees
a paper curled, news paper dew opening
the band is working on the music’s timing
bluegrass, all the dancers are wiggling
agreement unmeant – with the sublet
hands holding the payment tight
twirling leaves hung – like golden curles
original records that play on the darkest night

recital plays a piano reference
naming poems with warming breathe

leaving bread while it grows and rises
a paper maker, ribbons green
as we grow we are all changing sizes

in the middle, pupils pupils
recording call retained the thirsty names
night smears the very long rhythms
out of the belly falls sky entrails

revolving door – real-a-state turned over
playing guitar – playing the dulcimer

needed memories needled in place
fire places replace the sun
long lines try for rented space

need memories pasted in place
fire places replace the sun
long lines try for rented space

in the middle, pupils pupils
night smears the very long rhythms
blue ribbon beer, honey from the honey bees
long lines at the traffic lights

Take A Listen To “Long Lines”

    Wonderful line to giftwrap this poem: “needed memories needles in place”. Busy days, overcrowded, need a backburner to brew those memories into proper preservation.
