Finding Level

Finding Level

      up on a hilltop
standing near the sea
   you see the horizon

its no trick of your eyes
      you can see a curve

   level is another thing
(she wants your mother's
      diamond ring)

level is so hard to see
      why it is a mystery

   a computer chooses
something i don't see
      now it looks crooked

but somehow better

he played so long a rock guitar
      and often did it stoned

   last time i ever saw him
his fingers lost their tone
      (played on automatic
and the feeling was all gone)
