Read a story

Like a diary entry

From me,

From 1977


Talk about the passion

Punk rock headstones

Darkly lit room

New York City


Read the book

You’re so smart

Fall twisted,

Deeply in love


Try it now

See faces blinking

Starry eyed like

The backs of money


Faint little noises,

Faint little noises

Coming from

Corners of the room


Faint little lights

Faint little lights

Erasing all

Problems of the night


Go to sleep

Go to sleep


Saw your movie

It reminded me

Of something

I’ve seen everywhere, in passing


Good kind of way,

As you escape

Sullenly like diamonds

New York City


Saw your play

I don’t think much of it

The theatre, as an escapist

I didn’t fall asleep


I waited patiently

To clap for people

I don’t know

On principles I don’t have


Faint little noises

Faint little noises

Coming from

Corners of the room


Faint little lights

Faint little lights

Erasing all

Problems of the night


Go to sleep

Go to sleep
