Lions (7/14/01)

I guess it's true

Old habits do die hard

As I'm staggering under a load of unserved food

Bound for a landfill that doesn't need it

Watching the deckhand enviously with a want I haven't felt in years

Watching him smoke as he clears the bar, shunts passengers down the ramp

If I'm everywhere I wanted to be

Why am I reminded

That it's almost a decade ago to this second

When I caught a shooting star

And dropped it
