Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, this one's for you!



Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, this one's for you!


You're already a forest.
There are dolphins, 
lakes, and impossible 
loves inside you named Dylan 
sitting at my table.

When someone 
mentions your name 
in the future, 
empty houses 
brim with people.

Have you forgotten
it was happiness 
that first plowed my heart,
a storm in an empty glass of water.

When fear and hopelessness arrive
and the Cherry blossoms fall
on muddy ground,
you'll hear me scream 
like a gull or a woman

who knows moving forward
is to be left alone.
When all this happens
remember the tambourines
and the way rain 
turns into trees.
