The Other Side of Better by Michelle Elvy

Running up a hill
tripping upwards
falling downwards
making deals with the devil
or God — whichever works better

Radio’s on
Bush is burning
I turn it up and feel me yearning
for your devil grin and thunder heart
or God — whichever is better

As I listen and wait
I soon find myself
in a song
               it’s you and me…
in tune
               It’s you and me who won’t be unhappy…

in love and singing
this is better

    this is sweet. starts off smoldering dark and ends happy and as light as a good morning kiss.
