Joanna

I dissociate and I put off,
Joanna sings of silks and cloth,
She brings my belly round in wheels, bringing my body back to feel,
With girls we spoke of sodden hair,
and I still smile at things we share,
still want your warmth to hold me close,
I can’t quite bring myself to close,
She weaves a string, across the sheet,
she sends my blood, back to my feet,
She weaves a string, across the sheet,
she sends my blood, back to my feet,
So easy to feel put at ease,
It complicates to turn and leave,
but Jo she knows to learn from grey,
she writes the words I yearn to say,



She weaves a string, across the sheet,
she sends my blood, back to my feet,
She weaves a string, across the sheet,
she sends my blood, back to my feet,
Bite the bait, don’t waste those words,
wrap her strength, round my fingers,
bite the bait, don’t waste those words,
wrap her strength, round my fingers,
I dissociate and I put off,
Joanna sings of silks and cloth,
She brings my belly round in wheels,
bringing my body back to feel,
With girls we spoke of sodden hair,
and I still smile at things we share,
still want your warmth to hold me close,
I can’t quite bring myself to close,
