Thoughts through Kitchen Doors

I’m impressed by those that have enough to say to constantly fill a blog with streams of consciousness. I suppose I just don’t feel like I have enough to say, enough important thoughts that are worthy to be broadcast to the occasional visitor.

It’s not you, it’s me.

My thoughts couldn’t possibly entertain you. But perhaps this one has…
I like to imagine you smiling at me, reading this with your coffee in hand.

To distract you from my small words, here is a lovely song in combination with a Larsen Bowker poem.

The words are near and dear to me and have changed over time. I will be returning soon and I’m not sure I am No anymore. Maybe I am Faith at your kitchen door.

Cold Blue Nights

When I was young
I wanted to be just like him.
One of the charm, of a bright orange smile
and muscular laughter.

Bold brown eyes flashing fearless
when he sat not alone
on cold blue nights
in empty boxcars.

Riding a freight train’s
solitary wail
away from Nebraska

Depression, accompanying dreams
withered farms.
Nothing left but the
leaves of possibilities.

Kitchen Door

No was her name
No was the lion that no one could tame
But Faith was his name
Faith came around with a smile on his face anyway
He said, tell, tell me now
Tell me the worry that knit up your brow

She said slow down this train
Slow down the iron that runs in my veins

I can hear you tap tappin at my kitchen door
I can hear the river run, and the river want more
Don’t you know, I’m already sure
I can hear you tap tappin at my kitchen door

But No kept her name
No got so quiet she put out her flame
But Faith stayed the same
Faith came around with that smile on his face the next day
He said, follow me down
Follow me down with your pick and your plow

I can hear you tap tappin at my kitchen door
I can hear the river run and the river want more
Don’t you know, I am already sure
I can hear you standing quiet at my kitchen door.
