Impressionistic Roses

Ricardo Zegri 2005

 

Stole a moment

Under the last bloom

Of a magnolia tree

With a skeleton key

 

Sheets are swollen

Soaked with wine

Rose petals on the bed

Yellow & Red

 

There’s a diamond in the sink

Going down the drain

Lying in the pouring rain

Wash away this stain

 

Time to wake up

Time to feel

Reach out for you but you’re gone

But you’re gone

 

 

There’s an alley between Freeborn and Wintermute

Laid down on the cold concrete

Tombstones

Are snaggleteeth

In the graveyard mouth

Dead flower wreath

Can feel my bones

When I scab my knee

Hypnotized

By your eyes

Beneath me

 

You gotta live, live, live

 

Drinking free shots of "The Valencia" with Kitty

Broken bottle brown bag on the ground

Chain link fence

Black asphalt

In the school yard

Do a somersault

Tear open my shirt

Knuckles are bleeding

Like drinking whiskey

When you kiss me

Stampeding

 

You gotta live, live, live

 

Goose bumped skin

Under your overalls

Wanna count them all

Count em all

Count em all
