Iím sullen through some shimmering
light, streaky blue --
Itís a fragile, rainy Wednesday
and the televisionís mumbling news
Weíre losing a war, again, youíve heard
No one wants to take the blame
and the economy streams by on a ticker
which counts the slight dollars we spend
to stave off certain other insecurities
aside from the usual loneliness and apathy, itís just
Iím too tired to find my delight in sheer, spring dresses
Iím feeling Omaha, though Iím in North Carolina
youíre in California, Iím sure
Itís all steaming forward, regardlessÖ.
What more is there to say?
(Weíre losing, streams again, dollars we spend
No one to blame but certain insecurities
loneliness and apathy, rainy news mumbling
Youíre California steaming forward, regardless
Iím sheer, sullen Omaha, fragileÖ what more?
Weíre losing what war?)
"All the darkness in the world
cannot put out the light
of one candle"
