Head Out the Window & Facet

Head Out the Window

.

Little girl

Little girl

She sits by the window

Dangling her long legs

On the scrappy side

Of the house

.

Little girl

Little girl

What do you look at

Ahead in the wind

With eyes

Riding the sky

.

Little girl

Little girl

Help me please

Turn your head

From the skies

And advise the home

Where your body lies

.

.

.

Facet

.

The fat me

Sat unhappy

Gazing at the sky

Imagining

What I once was

That skinny daydream

Who knew

What to say

.

She tried to look like her

In clothes

And in voice

But she failed

To be the me

Of years ago

.

Then she decided to run

Across the sky

And see

If she could turn back time

.

As she began to thin

She began to slip

From this supposed

Calm sky

Into that skinny day

.

A facet

Had been released

And all her old clothes

And abilities

Came back

But not the words

Of the old her
