Keep Art Alive :: “Unraveled” :: Art by Kelly Vivanco

“Two of Us on the Run” :: Lucius :: SOTD 

“Two of Us on the Run” :: Lucius
from the album, Wildewoman (2014)

“Our favorite parts are what we’ll keep,
ornamental parts of love,
and parts of memories,
so everything else has room to grow.
‘Cause in better light,
everything changes.”

About the Song:

“Two of Us on the Run” is track 7 from Lucius debut album, Wildewoman. Mom + Pop Music released the album in North America in October 2013. Play It Again Sam released the album in UK and Europe, Australia, and Japan in March 2013.

Jess Wolf and Holly Laessig are the lead voices of Lucius. The band also includes drummer Dan Molad, guitarist Peter Lalish, and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Burri.

Lucius, SOTD, Song of the Day

My Thoughts:

A Thursday “throwback” poem I wrote, in October of 2016, with this song playing “Muse”, with some slight revisions:

Desert(ed)

We flicker off-an-on like strung out holiday lights
like the drain and fade of an unpaid utility bill
like the final wink-blink of oncoming headlights
that soon disappear into
this middle of night

I spot the exit up ahead
coming quick into view
you take a sharp right at the horizon line
almost colliding head first into that once familiar off-ramp
of us
that’s now just screams closed

Everything shrinks into a one-lane conclusion
collapsing into this last “last time”

Do you see it now?
The yellowing yield of a detour sign
the way it guides us up side streets
and near misses

We dodge the wreckage with a last minute turn of the wheel
slamming breaks squeal
joining in chorus with shuddered expletives
as my right hand automatically reaches to cover
your heart

As a young girl I used to sit quietly in the back
counting lines on the classroom clock
not wanting to admit that I couldn’t translate
numbers into time

You later taught me to read shadows
connecting my freckles and lines

This reroute lands us ten miles past Barstow
the desert dry covering everything in grey and grime
my eyes burn from all this open sky
from the sun-licked wind on my pinking skin
everything feeling like a scorpion’s sting

For a moment
I think you’ll leave me here
dangling precariously three last words

I know both of us are experts at running
at tripping on pretenses
and we hurry for the door

But you grab my left hand instead
circling each calloused year that’s past
on my open palm
whispering a Tarot card fortune
right between my ears
and my eyes

I can’t hear a single thing
until you finally
let go

“Cause everywhere I seem to be,
I am only passing through. 
I dream these days about the sea,
always wake up,
feeling blue;
wishing I could dream of you.”

Older writing/rewritten 
Throwback Thursday

For him
by me

Bed sheets thrown aside
half-hanging
somewhere beneath your hand shows through
fingers folded inward
clinging
holding on so tight
to something I can’t see

I watch with the wonder
of new sight
wishing I knew how to sketch all I see
and not just write it down
words
they fail sometimes

And I want all of this
to take with me
this moment
this early morning memory
this temporary room
and make it mine

I want to capture the way the sun
casts its shadows over us
while your hand hangs there
holding on
for life
for love
for one extra hour

My keys on the table
the only reminder
reality interrupting
as I lie here with you
and wonder
if this is our last time

I know it should be
but I want so much
more
