songs for lake matoaka

i

if it takes
so long

after someone

to get back to where you were
are you insane

or only very stupid

and now that i’m there
where am i

ii

—not that time matters of course
time is a great fraud

all the same it feels so strange
to wake up in the winter

before her

iii

people say nobody’s perfect
but almost everyone

looks like a god
in the right weather.

why not celebrate
i asked

while the sun shines
life’ll drive you mad

regardless why not
be a happy drunk
