sometimes, all i need is love

and maybe a little luck
or $50
a sharp pocket knife
maybe even one more quarter.
sometimes
all i need is love
and magic
and sex,
good comedy
good steak
strong coffee
sometimes,
all the time
well, maybe most of the time
all i need is some love
a few green lights in a row
maybe this blog
my camera
a good song on the radio
i need a good hat
one that's broken in
slightly dirty...
sometimes
all i need is some slightly dirty love
but not the kind that's broken in
because this aint a catchers mitt we're talking about
no
i'm talking about the open road
a good sitcom
a good drag off of a strong cigarette (but i don't smoke anymore)
i'm talking about good dope (but i don't_________ anymore)
a good buzz (but i don't_________ anymore)
a stiff drink (but i don't_________ anymore)

sometimes
all you need is one more hand
one more throw
one more pull
step
jump
bounce
one more yard
one more bite
one more anything then the pain that keeps you there, anywhere

all i need is a comfortable pair of jeans
i need god
my god,
i need moments like this
this one, right here
alone in my office
typing
feeling
believing,
i need all of this
whatever this is

and i need this photograph
and i need it to be good
i need to be good
better
greater
stronger...
i'm trying
trying so hard

well, let me rephrase that, i'm
not really trying
because this, is all i can do
and all i can do is be
so here i am
on a sunday night
being
living
learning.
