A MILLION MILES AWAY


 
 
 when you come to see the family 

 you travel from a justified bank account 

 overdrawn and overwrought 

 rectified rarefied deified thoughts 

 come prowling and scurrying 

 around the armoire 

 off the back of the divine

 adopted from the novelty of the dime 

 in the picture all the generations

 and ascenerio asterisk hysterical scenerio 

 when the dead and the the quick come to dinner 

 and you go to the hall 

 smoking and thinking 

 secondary wishes and weeds 

 questioning your palace, your place at the table 

 and the miles you've had to travel 

 while the family unravels
