Elijah Lynch, aka Smiley Gatmouth (et.) is a writer, musician & educator from Denver, Colorado. He doesn’t play out much, but he quietly performs to himself and his ukulele almost every day on the lightrail. If you see him, you should probably ask him to play you a song.
The salt of embryo and ocean
The grounding of the shoreline and rubber tread
Here is where true nature is seen
Here is where fleshly goodbyes are said
Parallel lines in a hotel room
A parallel universe unfolding within a surreal frame
Enfolded in two familiar arms
Embracing again for the first time
Renewal – the act of letting go
