lyrics

Astroturf Porch

muggy august afternoon
on your astroturf porch
with the porch swing swaying
and a congregation of
faded jigsaw puzzle parts
in rows, and your forehead furrows
[a summer scene, restoring order
just across the connecticut border]
a piece apiece is hard to find
and i would not
and i would not
and i would not
mind
put all the patterns close together
sweating out the summer weather
and the steam is rising from some grey surface
from the things we do with no purpose
but i
[i’d like to come across
as if by chance on some great chase]
and i
i’d like to see
i’d like to see
i’d like to see
your jigsaw-puzzled, furrowed, faithful face!
