A Mark on the Wall

from Ohio and West by Real Life Buildings



there is a chorus: there is a theme I keep coming back to
there is a passing of time, there is a release date
there is a solstice, there is a mark on the wall for how tall you were when you were twelve years old and at your sister’s friend’s house
and there’s another one for 22 in a greenpoint apartment probably painted over but maybe you haven’t grown too much since then

there is a chorus
there is a place where somehow everything comes together - everybody knows just what to say
meaning is muffled in an attempt at universality but its a way in -

a way to feel a part of something that could be bigger
it just might be bigger - yeah you really want to feel like its bigger

but in the end it still seems like its prescribed randomly
a critical mass is more like undiscerning and i’m left ambivalent

the words are meaningless if you read between the lines
a negative space even if you squint your eyes

and the sun is full now
the sun is high up in the sky
i’ve gotten older
feels like i’m running out of time and maybe that’s where some of this resentment lies
