Get Familiar

from by El Americano



you sit still in a broken car
drinking old box wine
on your front lawn you write
stories of old times
travel back to get your guitar
cross over state lines
open bar tabs you sign
that you left overnight

*have you sworn you’d change?
reassembled habits
make shapes
in my brain
don’t grow into the same
reimagined highways
shape lakes
out of frame

you exist in a broken mind
fear’s in high demand
call me crazy
as we nosedive holding hands

what if i could read your mind?
would i want to?
sorry i’d lose track of time
what else is new?
as i search for the better word
despite that you would leave so soon
what if I could read your mind, would i want to?
