there were words bubbling
the edges of my mind
until i tried to write them down.
now they are gone
on an airplane no doubt
much like you
asleep on the wings of the wind
and i am at a terrible disadvantage
trying to find them when i'm wide awake
of course it's the middle of the night
and there's a convenience store
around the corner.
lots of words stocked there
just not the ones i need.
i wish you would just come back
already, and maybe bring
a couple words
