(HARRIS)

By Callum Murphy


harry has said that i am a good talker


i told him many things

i told him about the small god who had ran within me

wild but enclosed

i told him about the sunday glow that slipped through the window

and into the studio


harry told me that i listen but rarely hear


i held my hands up said fair game, word, yes

straight up, H


i’ve been watching your face move but i’m satellite high

and mad focused on my own


i can hear you in front of me

but you’re a baby in a bubble

blue


i have watched you talk

and assumed that you were hollywood happy

but you might not have been


and i didn’t know because i didn't ask


but on this night together

we coined a cocktail

licked with tequila, lime and chilli jam

called it ‘the dickinmurph’


then we smoked something marshmallowy

and i opened the channel for you in truth


i said harry i am sorry


and then i asked you to give me signals


you told me that there is an insincerity in me

an ease in the swing of my tongue

but a possible shortage of pulp in my heart


as i splashed my dreams across your floor

i checked your face to see if you were still listening

and thought that you probably were


i saw my friend


one who has seen much

experienced much

lived much


i hope you see me as a friend

i hope i treat you like a friend

i hope you know i’ll listen
