If it weren’t for the wind / eyes wouldn’t tear / hair wouldn’t
swear / fires wouldn’t spread / & your face / your face would face /
instead it bends / a guilty cattail / free fallin’ / downdraft / of pints /
bottles / & shots / jingling / at
your feet / bad boy / fallin’ in the shadow / good boy / pullin’ yourself out /
Jekyll & Hyde / rollin’ on wood / free fallin’ / cycles / your head /
spins / if it weren’t for the wind /your head wouldn’t descend/ your face would
face / me / him / her / & them / your face would face / you / free fallin’.
