Writing Wednesday – Summer Traps “Self-Discipline”

The intros are going to be less and less as we post there. Here’s another Writing Wednesday focusing on the release of Dave Dean‘s new upcoming album “Summer Traps”. This song is entitled “Self-Discipline” and the lyrics will follow.

SELF-DISCIPLINE

when the leaves all grow
you can’t see downtown anymore
or Lake Ontario
out your back window

written on the walls
in drugs and alcohol
we both hardly slept
I won’t tell my friends

and let’s consider it
a soft form of regret
or self-discipline
keeping my clothes on again

it’s all been done we’ve got nothing
what’s left at least
are misplaced apostrophes
and callouses
in places you’ll never see them
