My Baby Blue-eyed Lake, Struggling Shins, Not All of Spring is Broken

By Luke Samra

My Baby Blue-eyed Lake


She’s got curves like a river

She’s my body of water


She’s my tattoo

Cuz she’s on my skin


She’ll be there




Struggling Shins


I get buzzed on your backwash

Patience makes things ageless

The traffic lights got

More sleep than I did

But I can play lazy blues

Pressing down as hard

As I can so I can get

The best sound in every fret

We’re like a chord

Muddy water and my wheels spin




Deeper than my chin



Not All of Spring is Broken


You planted me

Before April’s last frost

Even snow could not stop me
