Me and Chuck


 
It's no wonder I trust you with my soul  
Let you embrace me  
Cover me  
Shield me  
Your coat of arms makes me  
 
Royal  
 
Our misguided adventures are of my design  
But you are the perfect partner  
Wings to this dragonfly  
As I lope over  
Carolina's creeks  
And swing from the mahogany of her oaks  
You're there with me  
 
My cousins say I'm not ready  
 
Boy you're so skinny  
you could hoola hoop with a Cheerio  
They yell  
 
Ya mama  
I yell back  
Now gimme the rock  
And I shoot like the Pearl  
Soaring with your stars beneath me  
 
By evenin'  
My uncles let me in their circle  
They pass  
cigarettes  
beer  
gas  
 
lies and laughter  
 
Their feet are bound for the burdens they must carry  
 
heavy  
muddied  
scarred  
 
They call me  
Boy  
Cause I still carry stars in my eyes  
 
and on my feet
