Lustrum (Postcard)

from Paper Boats by Anna Vogelzang



it’s been too long since I said thanks
since I said I think we’re stuck with one another
or written you a simple note
folded in a paper boat
sorry if I forgot

for someone who is good with words
I think I’ve exhausted my vocabulary
cause all I see is morning light
shining in between the blinds
this is when I feel alive

I just want your time / I just want your time

it’s true that friends do disappear
but I have faith in something greater, like each other
and I’ll try not to let you down
& you will keep me on the ground
laughing hard and singing loud

& god’s either in every little thing or god’s in nothing at all
and I’m not talking about core beliefs
just the fact that I can feel so small
while I’m driving through this mountainside alone
& then I start to think of how far we’ve come

when I think of you
life doesn’t seem so dumb

the road’s not just a metaphor
in fact I think it might be my own little corner
& you get that I need to explore
take these songs from shore to shore
but baby you’re the greatest tour

I just want your time
