Woke up late and it was light out
Dragged it on the ground
Looked straight down

After you had taken all the pictures down
You remarked at how the empty walls echoed the sound
The trailing voice after you spoke really emphasized you’re all alone

The time it took to keep from looking down
Standing up too straight to see, we’re still working on it
The time it took to trust if we saw nothing up ahead
There’d still be nothing there when we arrived
We knew it when we fell

You were right, just like last time
Never could work it out

If it fits well, I’ll wear it to my grave
Will you bury me standing
So I take up less space
Face me forward
So I can watch it
What do I know?
Why bother now?

Bottom stair crowned, he said he feels alright
She climbed each one down, he said he feels fine

The time we spent worrying about
What was underneath the floor, but never prying up the boards
The time it took to stop adjusting every angle every side,
And let it stand up on its own,
What to be excited about
