You’re my kind of People
YouÂ point at strawberries and ask where they come fromâ€¦
you help the old carry in their garden bags..
you understood the sick from day one
You ask the parishioner how the wounds are coming along
you sing songs to the meek
you leave infants to their sleep and let dogs sleep as wellâ€¦
You keep the oath of friendship alive
keep a small circle in your tribe
you speak the words that nobody hears just for me in my gentle goodnightâ€¦
You hold my hand when nobody wants to
you clean my worry with a forgiving nodâ€¦
you hold the smallest human fractionairy glow when all current humans have spunt and sold their sharesâ€¦
your blood is all too good old human, like tobacco and whiskey, like trees and reciprocated airâ€¦
like a friendship of a poor chapterâ€¦hand it down, hand me down
hand it forthâ€¦ You look good in your St. Francis shine
you look good in your dirty denim
you look good in your salty England wet hair sleepy smile
you look rather fine in your riff raff but you look best honing a song aloneâ€¦
or thinking about the world in a room, a world of your own like sleepy swimming thingsâ€¦
under gentle moonlight not glass driven and soundwaved.
and you look good in my arms on a sunny day in San Francisco
you walk strong and smile and your mind is sound any forelorn fool can be dourâ€¦ we were always meant to be what we were to beâ€¦.
and I love you from this cratered in home i call a heart
I love you from this frozen dog pit i call a life
i love you from these rags i call richness
i love you from this blindness i call a telescopique lenz
i love you even when i feel so divorced from Life itselfâ€¦ and i wonâ€™t let you down. I am not like the poor othersâ€¦â€¦ i am the Sun when you crave light i am the moon when you wish to Howl i am the nothing when you want sleep i am the hello when youâ€™re in doubtâ€¦ You bring in the light and i will make it brighter.. you bring the faith and I will bring the morphineâ€¦ you shine a light and i will gather the stars and weâ€™ll both face the rainâ€¦ your smile is my medicine your eyes my rocketship your hands my infinity and my heart is your chocolate i melt as you call the shots.
