Farewell, Milquetoast
There was something in the water
That would not abide by the lines
They were brown and shiny
Just like the tules
That you cut down like soldiers
On the last of your expeditions
Macheteing his inhibitions

Whether by learning or fiat
You are an ideologue

Brave cedar tirades remind me
Of the outdoors
And the prohibitions of love and science
You know they're all brunette and blonde
Just like the wildflowers they wind their way
Into every speak gone wrong
This speak's gone wrong

She is the inspiration
In his search for the missing senses
But whether by learning or fiat
She is an ideologue

Is this burning an eternal flame?
Flying on vestigial wings
Pushing up wrinkled sleeves
As it pushes its parlay past the dealers
Who, in their genetic kindness
Sprouting from 72 sites of origin,
Are point-pinning the days it takes
To swell into something like life-sized

Whether by learning or fiat
You are an ideologue
In pursuit of your personal agenda
Dressed mostly in white
Your nine-string guitar blazing
Into the sky forevermore


from Granny Smith, released March 1, 2001
