This Day

This song is by Bowerbirds and appears on the album Upper Air (2009).

This day is no special day
This day will see no placards given
This day will see no dismembered limbs
Yet there buzzes about a distant chainsaw

Whose sound comes in and out on the timid wind

This day is a slow gesture
This day is just clearly not ready
It hopes for a year of vibrant clarity
But waits for the cues from the coming weeks

And fumbles and stares blankly

It's not clear how this day will end
But I have put my money down
On having a clear view from this house to the heavens and back again
It's not clear how this day will end

This day heaves like a cold engine
With a tank of old gasoline
Live your mornings on ether
And tremble with anticipation as the sun goes down
