"Mornings Like These suggests an event of clarity when the fog of excess lifts to reveal a dirty human reality" - Patrick Emery, Inpress


Mornings Like These

Three lanes of traffic, either side of me
I walk the strip, of stillness in between
The first pink clouds are sharp, against the dark
The tail lights leave a shower of red sparks

I fill my lungs with the last of the night
A point of darkness in a blaze of headlights
Free from the fog of desires and regrets
Right now I don’t care that nobody’s left

I’ll remember mornings like these
It won’t be the parties or the lovers or the shows
Only you know, only you know

Searching for fun through the noise and the nerves
No chance of something realin those lonely encounters
The moment of glory that leaves with the crowd
I feel lucid on mornings like these
