lyrics

But it wasn't, on a mid-winter evening, rising

---not the moon; it was actually some uptown building’s peak light

appearing at a glance out the train window, just as round

and propped in that occurring, hyper-real clarity,

low in the sky.


The surprise alone was striking enough to jot down

in a rumpled matchbook, the only thing I had

to bear witness (and to extend your amusement)

until some seconds passed and you tapped me, saying,

"like that," pointing behind us,

“over there.”


“Look.”


Climbing up the backs of skyscrapers

and still so yellow, not yet rinsed of the horizon,

just as the sun’s melting behind Jersey.

(( I am the sea and the land
And I run through your hands ))


Struck again, only deeper this time: all those desolate

evenings & erratic early mornings waiting on phone calls,

continents apart,staring out of windows and

up at moons like we were banished from everything

critical to time & place,

asterisks in a story of fugues.


Or like we were lofted too, and were now coming down

through winds and meridians into the solid presence of this train,

these seats, the passengers around us, the shitty but welcome light---

everything taken captive for our new eyes’ sudden appraisal,

our own keeping,

together.

(( Sun runs through your veins
Comet trail in your brain
Sunrise in your veins ))
