Station Wagon

Always you must start by starting
You must fold your flag in five
You must dress yourself each morning
You’re a bird nesting in a beehive

And again you’re faking fever
Going for a Sunday drive
Late November scattered showers
On the Douglas fir and the bishop pine

Stored away your summer garments
Mourning still for girls gone by
But the body, yeah, is so resilient
Every day it manages to rise

Could produce a final wonder
Infant thing with untrained eyes
My expression is embarrassed
Parentless and paralyzed

Saw her at a Christmas party
At the house of an old friend of mine
I am still prepared for plenty and
I am prepared to improvise

Her car was a station wagon and the
Defrost was turned on high and the
Driveway was wet with old snow
And black in places with the melting ice
