counter balance

By Anonymous

we balance laughs with little bit of politics

balance that weight watching guy fall on his kickflips

we balance those laughs with little talk of the future

then balance out fear with more humor

we’re walking through a cloud of smoke
balancing balance
on top of other balances

haze of distractions and adjectives
how we like it
a mountain of balances

hell, we balance the whole world on a bed of silences

that place we met that friend who did the thing so we don’t talk anymore

that place we met by that swing and did the thing so we can’t go anymore

fuck! I kinda miss King but we don’t talk anymore

i balance out that anger with the perfect swish and I don’t feel confused anymore
