Italicized song lyrics in part 3 copyright Melissa Davis

 

1.

wheaty sunhat 

red jacket blue jeans

green leaves and stalks

and yellow sunflower

three terra di sienna faces

and hundreds turned away

from the news

riddled with the temporary

does not apply to vast areas

in the heart

 

2.

red jacket on a field of green

man woman old young

is it you under the brim

of the wheat-colored hat?

a thousand oily black seeds

spiral in the laden disk

you hold in your artist’s hand

small worlds

in the palm of

a tender god

 

3.

a tender god’s

weary bleary voice

from the buzzing fields

I was takin’ you home

                you never wanted to go

voices like twining ribbons

you let go of my hand

                you un-tethered your soul

from the harmonica breeze

we let go

 

4.

of the news

the temporary

the vast areas in the heart

and the wheaty sunhat

red jacket blue jeans

green leaves and stalks

and yellow sunflowers

three terra di sienna faces

and hundreds turned away

turned away away away
