Ezy Reading:
On The Machine
Evan Kanarakis


You sent me down
To the corner store
A little errand just to save us
Like I knew
What we needed

Aisles of hope
That we planted
Shopping for forgiveness
Wish I had the answers
Because I’m slipping away

There are dreams of better places
Past the shame
Of yesterday’s mistakes
In the hearts we left behind

It’s hard when we’re so tired
And when we can’t just take a break
But we knew
When we got started
We began as broken shapes

Sunday morning, back from shopping
To our quiet, empty space
And I’ve got my reservations
Seems you’ve left a message
Of another time, another place
