"June 18th 2014" - Sam McCormick

none of the clocks are correct
and the dead arm hours are over

I must have been a thief
with all that gold around my face

the morning looks so good on you
I stole another glance before I made my way

I am beginning to realize I could
be a dancer or a mountain or a cup for ashing

if you want it work for it or
stand there naked and wild

before they catch you
make sure you remember to turn off

some of the thoughts that begin
to burn things down
