your place

your place:

scary movies
first couch kiss

school skipping
out front step sitting
holding hands
listening





walk by
cross street
looking left

still your place,
but you're not there

    1. Hey little hat!

      Is that roger rosser who used to be a teacher in the Solomon Islands?? I have been trying to locate him for years. I need to give him a copy of my first album. The man inspired me to sing and fall deeply in love with music and performing. And since then I have become a full time professional touring musician, played 15 festivals, released an EP and a full album, and hit number 1 in triple J unearthed roots charts for 3 different songs... the man inspired me, more than any teacher before or after him, to chase my dreams, and I need to thank him for that personally... but have NO idea how I can do that...
      My name is Karl Smith and I am an artist known as THE LYRICAL

  11. ...and so it is not the same at all, just a place holder to remind of what used to exist.

    *sigh*

  12. It is funny how when you go back you have to see what was there and if it still exists and yet it never truly does.

  15. I grew up in a very small mid-western town ... your Magpie reminds me of how I feel when I return. It's a good feeling, bitter and sweet.
