Track Name: Youngest Son
I was born a long time ago,
born a long time ago
born in a town where it snows,
full of woods and creeks
and color-changing leaves

and I come from a large family tree,
from a large family tree
we share a name that comes from Italy,
and we laugh and sing
with some imbalanced mentally

but our grandpa,
and his youngest son
have left us all
behind

and now I live a far way away
I live a far way away
but I think of them every day
how we laughed, and sang,
and loved on winter holidays

and I’m slow, slow to embrace
slow, slow to embrace
how we age and take each other’s place
and I laugh, and sing,
but now my voice
is not the same

oh dear grandpa,
your youngest son
has left
left us
just like you
Track Name: Permanent Now
your brother Rich
he looks at pictures
of when you were kids

and your niece has dreams
of backyard scenes,
she hears you speaking


but it’s been eight months now
your body was found
still without sound

it’s been eight months now
your body was found
in a silent shroud


and your sister Beth
she’s still obsessed with
blame and vengeance

and all your mother said was,
“goodbye dear,
be at rest.”


and it’s been eight months now
you’ve been underground
you’re not coming out

it’s been eight months now
you’ve been underground
it’s permanent now

it’s
permanent now
Track Name: Holding To
I tried
holding
to
a moment
I
tried
holding to
a
moment

but I
was
only dreaming

I
I was only
dreaming

when face to face
I saw
you
talked to you
told you
I love you
we care for you
we still do

I
still do
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
and I wonder
where are you
now

and I look
to my feet
and I
look to the sky
until something tells me
close your eyes

I’m still with you
here
I’ll be with you
I’ll be with you

in a matter of time
in a matter of
time
I’ll—
in
all matter
in time

I’ll be with you

again

I’ll be with you
again
I’ll be with you
I’ll be with you

again
Track Name: Teeth
and it
rises up
in me
more often in
routine daily
tasks

it rises
and swells
and I manage
it.
I think
keep brushing
your teeth
just brush
your teeth,
until I
can’t remember
if I’ve
brushed my
teeth
for too long
or
not
long enough.
Track Name: Embrace
there’s a painting
of Jesus
that brings
reassurance
to both
of my parents,
who don’t know
what happens


after death
after your death
is it just darkness
are you in darkness


and now
mornings
I wake up
and I see
the end
in everything
so I try to make
peace
with these moments of
silence


after your death


and after your wake
I stayed up
so late,
I held your guitar
and I played
with tears on
my face
it felt
like a last
embrace


could you then feel my love
could you then feel my love
could you then feel my love
Pete,
could you feel my love

and do you still feel my love
do you still feel my love
do you still
feel
my love
Track Name: (Pete's Guitar)
I held your guitar and I played
