. . . the world we’ve made
scares the hell out of me.
There’s still a little bit of heaven in there
and I wanna show it due respect.
This looks like a good spot up here.
You can try me on the cell,
but most places I wanna be
it doesn’t work.
Sometimes you got to listen hard
to the sounds old Mother Earth still makes
— all on her own.
Greg Brown, from “Eugene”
