I sleep through the violence of the city
But there’s a fly caught buzzing ‘round my room
And then I drink in the violence and its stench
While I hide in bars from the moon

I don’t know
I don’t know

We were hollow and heavy
Falling lightly through a dream
Then you saw something moving
I said its nothing

Through the violence of the street
I walk around remembering in fits
There was a time, while you murmured nonsense in your sleep,
That I watched a fly land on your lower lip
I clenched my fist, but I could not swing at it

I don’t know
I don’t know

Take another pull with my head thrown back
And everything is chopped up and fluid like waves
Now, slowed down, all images become beautiful
Rat tails twitch like dancing things.
Even Orion seems alright, wavering on the wet trash outside.
Wings sprout out of my lower back and I hover, buzzing, above the bar.
I look down to where you would be sitting.
Tear-streaked cheekbones.
And I see you as an old black shed.

We were hollow and heavy
Falling lightly through a dream
Then you saw something moving
I said its nothing
