B Sides

Knowing after it is gone

Slow down at all still always there you are
Right foot in left shoe fitting in obverse
Scenes and songs have not abandoned thus far
Impatiently singing the next staged verse

No turning right while in separate tow
Lower priority never asked told
The memory of someone else's home
An awkward passage to have and to hold

Screaming pitch forcing stale fortuity
Tangential for obscure guiding to clear
Implications drag smudged memories 
A muffled warmth cooling hesitant fear 

Remembering the refuge of embrace
Staring into your eyes to find your face

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
