@iambernardjohn
  • All that we’ve buried
From the day we took off those sopping wet bleach white gloves and breathed so deep we made pearls of the stones in our chests
To the day that we just fucking lost count of how many stones and days there were

You told me you hurt, and we buried it
I told you I wasn’t good enough, and we buried it
You showed me your scars, and we buried it
I showed you my broken jaw of a family, and we buried it
You - you screamed to me, pleading for someone SOMEONE to please put out the raging fucking fire in your head before you did it yourself, and I…
...
...
...
I buried it.
...
...
...
With that dirt still fresh under my nails, you buried my terror of tearing love and laughter from our unborn child
As if all we buried was a time capsule waiting for them to find… by the swing set… that we built together… on a good day

I hope it all grows
I really do
One by one in the backyard, I want your hurt and my doubt and your scars and my broken jaw and the pounding POUNDING POUNDING in your head to grow like the vile skyscrapers they were always meant to be
I want to stand by your side and take your hand and shout them down with the spit of sledgehammers flying from our mouths

I want one more good day like that
I want to till the garden
I want to make love in the kitchen like when the days still counted #LinePerDay
•
Free form has always been tough for me. I was surprised this one spilled out.

  • We were half past the golden grass when the sun had gone to seed
You ran ahead to the hills, I followed you still, your sleeves just out of reach
-
The wishes came fast with the dandelion dust, the valley was breathing out
The lonely wind was praying again, chasing all the foxes underground.
-
Tell me now, were we just throwing our pennies into orbit?
Tell me now, were we just aimless at best?
The silver just kept growing
But we were holding out for gold and
Tell me now, were we just panning riverbeds?
-
Laid out beneath that movie screen, I flickered questions to the air
The flames were shouting, you were quiet counting, all lit up and barely there
-
Tell me now, were we just throwing our pennies into orbit?
Tell me now, were we just aimless at best?
The silver just kept growing
But we were holding out for gold and
Tell me now, were we just panning riverbeds?
-
I caught your eyes, all wet and wide, now the trees were breathing in
You were another chain reaction
Set off in all directions
An honest insurrection
You always had the upper hand
-
Tell me now, were we just throwing our pennies into orbit?
Tell me now, were we just aimless at best?
The silver just kept growing
But we were holding out for gold and
Tell me now, were we just panning riverbeds? #LinePerDay

I had been kicking this tune around for quite awhile and finally decided to blow it up and take a fresh look at it again today. Been so focused on recording lately that I haven’t sat down to write. Thinking it was good to come back to this one with a clear head. Let’s see if we have time to sneak it onto the record.

  • I hit a little speed bump, but very excited to announce this show with @johnfaraone, @drjones_rx and @american_echoes! See you all @askewprov on 12/6! #providence
  • I just got home from spending a few days in the hospital with a bout of pancreatitis and duodenitis. It’s painful and it sucks. I have a lot to say about that whole experience, and I’m sure that someday I will. For now though, all I want to say is this… On Monday I was on my 5th day of (what I had thought to be) excruciating pain that had only gotten worse and showed no signs of turning the corner. I was frustrated and was just starting to feel sorry for myself when I learned what a complete and absolute badass @maggiejeannesiegel is. I mean, I always knew that Maggie was a badass human, artist, creative mind, the list goes on… but the fight she has been giving glioblastoma is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Maggie, thank you for showing me what true bravery looks like. You’re amazing and you’re not alone in this.

Family and friends, if you’ve never met Maggie or @msamos_pvd before, all you need to know is that some album, some piece of artwork, some show or fundraiser or non-profit they’ve supported, some community that they’ve helped build, or friend in need that they’ve taken care of has made your world a better place. Please help if you can.
