Track Name: Sound of Crickets
Traveling alone
memory stored
painting the truth
no one can afford
bags on the bed
burns on the floor
aim the remote at
the voices next door

and the windmills turning
darkened skies
endless fields
where beauty lies

awake in a fog
descending the stairs
assembled a crowd
enduring the glares
questions are asked
familiar unknown
impressions that last
reflecting the long ride home

and the windmills turning
darkened skies
endless fields
where beauty lies
the sound of crickets
slowing down
getting colder
wearing out

a raving success
the papers report
expert address
all in accord
erupting applause
its not loud enough
strength a facade
destroyed by the steady sound of

windmills turning
darkened skies
endless fields
where beauty lies
brilliant stars fade
daylight dies
shadows casting
muted cries
Track Name: Queen of Coincidence
Mixing up your laundry
Crash your carts at the produce aisle
Barely catch the N train and again a knowing smile
Spinning through his intervals
Your yoga class aligns
Pay to match a random heart
Familiar face online
Magnetic motion
Pulling you closer

Call it chance
dismiss a glance
You gravitate away
Suspend your disbelief that there’s
a greater force in play
Love a novelty to graph
infinity it grows
The universe will finally burst
Into your arms
who knows

Magnetic motion
Pulling you closer
You’re the Queen of Coincidence
The spark igniting
A sequence of incidents
Events colliding
The Queen of Coincidence
Your fate it might be
that maybe he’s the one

You’re the Queen of Coincidence
The spark igniting
A sequence of incidents
Events colliding
The Queen of Coincidence
Your fate it might be
that maybe he’s the one

Years have passed
Faced fears at last
A dream trip overseas
Take a foreign language course
Your guide book’s company
Ready for the takeoff
Empty seat waits at your side
Flight delayed for standbys
And he’s standing first in line
Magnetic motion
Pulling you closer

You’re the Queen of Coincidence
The spark igniting
A sequence of incidents
Events colliding
The Queen of Coincidence
Your fate it might be
You’re the Queen of Coincidence
The spark igniting
A sequence of incidents
Events colliding
The Queen of Coincidence
Your fate it might be
that maybe he’s the one
that maybe he’s the one
that maybe he’s the one
Track Name: Big Books
Falling in silence
Hearing the past
The risks of revealing
A heartbreak unmasked
Careful expression
Steady on course
Eloquent poet
Erasing a verse
Graceful his movement
Commanding in voice
Beautiful creature
At peace with his choice

Big books and ideas
A new world to see
His ear so tuned in
To all things but me

Melting in gazes
A mans only flaw
Writing a mystery
With no denouement
Stretching my limits
I keep getting burned
Hopes always drowning
In lessons unlearned
Been through a lifetime
In each moment I cage
Holding my breath for
A one word exchange

Big books and ideas
A new world to see
His ear so tuned in
To all things but me

Listening and learning
I'm trying to catch up
The muse he imagines
I'm not matching up

A student of sages
You'd think he could see?
His soul so enlightened
But how can it be?
With his big books and ideas
Who can't love him back like me
