Track Name: Turbo Stasis
Though I know it’s not true
I still believe that I have the body of my late teens
or early twenties

And that my legs could still lead off
the four by one team that would have made States
if we hadn't dropped the baton during a mangled hand-off

Age has a voice that starts like a whisper
and grows to a roar
Track Name: We Did Not Need to Open It to Know It Was There
Our apartment was breathing
like each groan was its last will and testament
or as if every single secret it heard was a weight on its chest
it just had to get off

And the marching band that follows my upstairs neighbor around
is keeping feverish time during all hours of the night

I have always envied how fast you fall asleep
