Go Fly Your Kites 1st Draft

Go fly your kites
go fly your kites
and stay the fuck out of my way

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
and exhale the morning dew

Go fly your kites
go fly your kites
your mouth is a mass of wisdom teeth and kind words

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
kiss with courage ‘neath pier lights

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
great heavens above open and all

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
let girth not sorrow govern your day

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
this lame wind bent back grasses
tall about our waists

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
open up this grand white eloquent house
trim away the bed sheets
make linen silhouettes

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
rapturous the cries of the boys in blue

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
in the cathedral grounds a twilight
becomes ghost



go fly your kites
go fly your kites
so that one time we settled for supper right?

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
get breath caught in the zipper of your coat

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
let the announcement of the trumpet be your first port of call

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
rapturous calls from the boys in blue

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
dazed cant speak so left it at that my love

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
you in the moses basket should be out flying your kite

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
see serenity and peace well that’s for suckers

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
holy are you. holy are you. there is no god but you.

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
spiralled thread round babel and card prayers stuck on each one

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
thankyou for the wishes I kept each one safe

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
having enough you sat on the steps and wept



go fly your kites
go fly your kites
ach my hips aching I say so long

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
g’bye Kate the first time I saw your handprint was on Hannah’s wall

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
cut cute swathes from your notes im bored with it

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
plastered cracks and foundation humming with a newer song for you

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
contrite we living through fragments

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
breath will keep them afloat

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
it’s the mainsail of a Mozambique airship

go fly your kites
go fly your kites
for once the radios off and you are a t home
