go ahead

by blake ellington larson

throw in the towel

wipe your brow
think about storage
about your photographs
the next ten years
sip your tea

lean back friend
do not worry
take your time
get married
it couldn’t hurt that much

plot your land
you gotta grow some roots
you gots ta learn
the nature of trees
gotta sit the fuck down

and start singing

you gotta get comfortable
first

so please
by all accounts
let the love in

clean sheets mean a lot
to a guy who sleeps on the floor

you can always
iron it out later

(2007)
