Sunday Flag

Worse than burning, inertia churning
In turning headlamps glow
Spreading sorrows pile up tomorrows
While sunlight sheds its clothes
So like a train slow
Here’s all that we know
Leave all the rest low
And hang it just so

All I want to spell
Are sequences of shelves
That I call myself
Are you listening?
All I want to do
Is break the bricks in two
And stem the stripping blue
Eyes are glistening

For the sake of sighing
I’ll start by buying
Whatever madness I choose
Tied up inside
The squeamish get by
With nothing ever to lose
Still by reaching
We feed new teaching
Despite indifference of proof
Let the naming come soon

Down, down, it’s underway
Run unafraid

I’ll wave a Sunday flag
Woven from scores of rages
Cut on the shores of jags
Free from the frays and slag
I’ll wave a Sunday flag
I’ll wave a Sunday flag
