punk rock poetry is neat. part 2

"this is not me"
by jason gleason (former frontman of further seems forever)

what's it like to make a metaphor?
my mother's womb
my dad's guitar
my love is a heart
or a kiss
or a star
or a prayer for my life as i sleep in the car
she's a doctorate in rain
and the same last name
or a light in the dark and my god is the same
my life is a speck of dust
or a flame
and i'm all the better for it
not knowing, or caring, it's not for me to choose
same call it trust
some call it faith
it's all just a matter of taste
and this is not me
and i've fooled you all again
