stars and tom petty

eighteen months and i have to do
homework to move forward.
i have to remember that play
to want to continue to move forward.
nighttime hours and grimy teeth
and a tummy ache and not being
focused and saying things like 'i wish.'
greasy hair in my face and your face
and my friends are all real great they're
all moving away. northern oregon and
colorado and new york city and some
are coming back from islands like
the united kingdom and catalina
gonna tell me about their trip.
she is in kathmandu with raindrops
and mats and babies that won't ever
eat, too skinny and pictures of stars
and studying the stars and its funny
i always think of her when i look at the
stars or hear tom petty on the radio.
