I woke up like this.
I've been having very bad headaches lately.
After the show last night,
I drove home from Nashville
with an ax slicing up and down
the bridge of my nose,
it's sharp edge
right across my eyebrows.
And once I got home,
I collapsed in my bed,
Ate a couple chunks of a
That I had been given strict instructions to just nibble
and waited for a relief spaceship to come.
Two different people showered in the shower next to my bedroom.
Melissa did. And it smelled like a woman had showered.
Clay did. And if smelled like a man had showered.
Colter came in from the show. I heard his guitar case hit the hardwood in the living room.
And then, I traveled to my own brain's version of Pluto.
A high as fuck planet where headaches don't go away, but instead you become more acutely aware of them. Unpleasant.
A planet where the cold wash rag across my face smelled not like a man or a woman but a bath in my grandmother's bathtub - the one who's water still came from the spring. Pleasant.
A planet where I kinda wanted to puke up my hamburger and fried egg dinner, refrained from this act, and then eventually, in a kind of slow gravity-free jog just like you see the astronauts do on tv - I went to sleep.
The house was empty and still -- like a faraway star tends to be -- when I woke up like this.
inauguration-schhminauguration -- I'm pumped because today belongs to @brokenneckrose
happy birthday to the brightest light in Utah - a brilliant, bold, beautiful young woman who gives me a lotta hope for the future of creative, strong women in the music business and in any business.
sad songs make me feel better
I could not be more thrilled for this pairing. Colter (& his full band!) will be opening for the beautiful human / superb songbird @missmargoprice!

first thing in the morning
above the city
i leaned softly
in the bright white;
and just like that --
heavy was light.
