Franny 03:33
All the vines wrapped around the tree All the notes of the jubilee Free and easy All your missives are put to sea All your books on the shelf just where they ought to be Free and easy All your bottles are washed to shore With the needles that do not sing anymore Free and easy All the watches are bleary All the kettles are empty
Zooey 02:40
Let's go out walking, young nephew, And maybe we'll see where the railroad tracks go Seek those winds you collect, seek those caves you suspect down below Let's go walk in the garden with paths forking out Where the flowers are purple and tall Let's jump over ditches where we fear the bridges might fall Stand up steep like a sentence, steep like a stain, Like a letter that you’ll write on a train Like a man in a story Jim Harrison wrote, Like a cipher descending in time, His light might corrode on the bench And explode from the mine And the band begins to play And all of her memories wash away 'cause she's one of us now and there's no going back Once she's learned how to stand up and swear She can pluralize "person," her ideas rehearse in the air But like a record still spinning, a story still told Will rise from the ocean's gray pall Like painted black rings, like a temple with wings on the wall And in its pale light we too might begin To be the ones that we've always been
