second hand clothes - single

by Cormac O Caoimh

1.
Your soul’s Second hand clothes Worn through At the knees and elbows Try teach Teach me a sadness That fits you Fits you like old shoes Run out of child All that’s left is man A beautiful lie Spoken softer than no sound *2 Your mind Never arrives Stretched out Stretched like a runway Reach me Reach me and leave me Miss you Miss you like old shoes LPs On an old phonograph Plays clean But your favourite tracks are scratched Rewind Try put the needle back Skip you Ditched you like old shoes

You should have been born somewhere else A town designed by a kind architext You should have been born somewhere else Somewhere more and less pedestrian You could have been born someone else You should have been born sometime else With blessings blossoming your fingertips You should have been born sometime else Where your grace would grace all who you met You could have been born someone else You should have been named someone else A name unique and with no history You should have been named someone else In a language befitting your mystery You could have been born someone else You could have lived as someone else I’d be someone you you’d easily forget You could have lived as someone else And reached out to the stars all by yourself And.... Love like another kind of love When the old poets wrote of this They knew that you’d exist So glad I witnessed it So glad I witnessed it Love

What do…
A honeyed whiskey drink,
A fine cognac on a cold winter’s eve
A warm woolly jumper in muted earthy colours
A colour .. a rich mahogany warm and beautiful
and a water color painting all have in common???
