Redwood Seeds

from by Short Answers



I’m not sure whether September brings out myself
Or drowns it in colors, in barren branches
I’m shedding my leaves

I used to welcome the rain
I used to long for the Pacific Northwest
I used to do my best to grow out of this
And feel like I serve some purpose

I crawl up the washed out hillside
Just to be alone, to clear my mind
To just forget the fear of always being in the way
To be too far to hear the noise or see the light of day

In three years, I’ll still be standing here
Still breathing the same air that froze my lungs
Still drinking to thaw them and come undone
And I know the seasons are so rare in this place
And yet I blame the cold for the way that I feel today
So hollow and misplaced
A fear that I can’t face my own mistakes

I’m tying myself around your wrist
So don’t let me drift away
I lie to myself to deal with this
And wonder why things don’t change
