It's been almost three weeks since my last song. That's the longest streak in over a year. I'm trying to break the spell that song construction has over me, but it's been tough. I seriously have a problem that, I believe was approaching an very unhealthy level. I just want a balanced life. I think I owe thag to my wife and dog. {censored} the cat. I could care less what he thinks. Wish me luck!

Does song construction mean songwriting or is it something different? I could understand why you'd want to limit song construction -- with all the troubles in getting building permits and figuring out zoning laws.

don't give it up cold turkey. it's not healthy. you have to unburden yourself of some of these songs at some point. it's like a pressure cooker. don't even acknowledge days, weeks, or months as far as writing is concerned. write when you need to write. got to bleed the poison....

The Night I Saw A Day

by j. paul gorman

 

brother looked wired on caffeine

cab full of offspring, one of them snoring

growing tall and sturdy

could'a swore he called me uncle ross

walked the streets and back alleys

skipped the dark trail by the river

cold, dark, and lonesome it looked

ran across the road like desperate cats

stood in line at a chicken place

then we fed the poor and hungry

they snubbed their noses and sneered

but they did take time to enjoy the feast

activities commence

rosy kiss from the lips of a queen

the skin smooth and cool to the touch

tight muscles relaxed and breathing slow now

we need to bleed the poison

unburden the mind, make it light

drink wine in a juice glass

understand the talk, understand the eyes

phone calls late at night

must rescue another distressed dame

comfort and courage when we meet

the night i saw a day
