Broomstick Serenade

by Eduard Bănulescu



The only true love affairs are the ones that maddeningly search for healing powers. Imagine holding your life in a suitcase. Imagine someone carrying that suitcase to you. Now, imagine someone losing the suitcase on the train. Where’s your healing power now?
Broomstick Serenade is an alt-rock song of love and loss.


Broomstick serenade

Broomstick serenade
Sweep off my dirty soul
Clean up the mess I made
Billy learns to shovel coal

Broomstick serenade
Stomach sick from all the light
If I learn to greet her right
Let me sing for her all night

Got an alarm o’clock that’s set
Helps me learn to sing/move in time
Got a monkey holding my place
I’ll teach it how to cut in line

Vroom vroom on the interstate, is not like vroom vroom on the sea
Used bobs of sand to spruce my coffee
Learned foreign curse words from a seagull
Remembered forgetting my name in the classroom
Showed the sky how it should dance for you and me

I got the water faucet dripping steady in morse code that I’m too blind to read
Specifically I remember nothing
There were harsh words spoken I’d imagine now
The teacher told me my grades were slipping
Looked in the mirror and couldn’t track a road on my face enough to pull a weed

Now my memories are packaged in plastic and sure to pollute the Earth
Dash from my chest like a revolver
Lean overboard to reach your blues machine
Make like a puck and slide on over
If I got all my equations right, you might just show me what life is worth

Polka trash, polka dot
She loves me true; she loves me not
If my sails should fail me while they’re dragging me to you
Take me back to meet my maker on a bed of morning dew
