Curtains, yellow, sofa, green.
She sleeps, her muscles softened
The world dives to truth and lies - both sides identical
If she wakes up we'll have to talk
Blessing the arrow as it flies
Without any violence, just the weight
Photos of a dead wife
Many cold bedrooms, many open doors
My cupboard full of masks
I worry about mellowing
Of course I'm sweating. it's hot in here!
Sad emails from Ireland
Empty houses sigh, then slowly eat themselves
I didn't like the way he spoke or the fact he spoke at all

Room, after room, after room.
At the top of the stairs, beneath the attic hatch
Here, take a flower.
When I was dead (I mean the second time)
A band of naked drummers rattling forth
That is the past, the baited bears, the public hangings
Butter to the throat and other myths
I can tell the story of this place, the village, town, now
We are going. No, really
