Night Years

from by Cut Teeth



we trusted the tape deck to flip the cassette
now we only trust our ever-turning tongues to beget
our hollowed-out refrains have got us running up the rungs
got nothing to say, so at the top of our lungs:
we all work for nothing

we’d rather while away the hours
playing “marry, kill, or fuck”
than heed self-serving movement
or tempt our dumbest luck
we’re kept busy basking in the haze
stoned and popping sugar pills
we’re kept busy

with the wind wearing all our sheets
and our lines left lacking
how can we find a place to sleep
with no secrets left to keep
flapping our vacant tongues
how can we find a place to sleep

I don’t believe the world is coming to an end
this year
this year
but let’s live it like it is
it is
