SWEATA

Sunscreen

She wades through the river,
slowly –
its current pushing against her
lean body.

Round cobble stones,
slippery –
move around her bare feet
as she tries to keep
balance;

as she tries to reach the deep.

Her exposed upper body
glistens
with sweat
as the sun relentlessly beats,

yet she smells of sunscreen,
heavenly.

She spreads her arms, topples,
and makes a big

splash!

Then returns to pounce on me,
cold, wet,
and goosebumpy.

I laugh and share my body’s heat,
breathing in her scent,
heavenly.

we’re gonna release this song in a couple weeks so I decided to share some demo/practice versions in the meantime

The drunk’s face breaks into sweat

as his friend falls under the wheels

this is an emotional state

I’ve seen in dreams and felt in reality


The cop’s car parked by the road

I check my mirror to see if I look ok


I can walk and talk but I can’t walk and think

and I can’t ride a bike but I can drive and drink
