Laugh and Measure

We'd laugh and measure
take our dreams out
feel the sea breeze

We'd journey together
make maps

Nothing was written down
No contract
No default

Ascending Today

Up and up
steps and steps
to the church on the hill

I don't like tourists
They're vulgar and stupid
doing places on their checklist
Nothing sacred about Sacré Coeur

Summer breaks
  like a hammer
    on concrete blocks
      down to sand,
        and a wind
          blows away
                of smoke
