a man tries to sell a flower to a little girl
elsewhere a building is on fire
a crowd of pedestrians stands transfixed.
Ella and Henry are in love
they go roller skating Fridays
to celebrate.
A small dog watches them and thinks about snow
on another planet far away,
Myrna wonders if
(Myrna wonders if)
Myrna wonders if she will ever stop growing.

(High in the sky many clouds run their courses, they are many, they are
far away, they are far away, they are so far away, I am much stronger
than that, I can carry, I can carry, many things, many things, except
that)

An abandoned cat sits in a doorway
reluctant to venture into the driving rain
Only to find a light
is the only--light is the only--to find the only light
to find the only light

we all die alone (repeat x16)

only we all die alone we all only die alone, we all only die alone

A little girl dangles her feet over a precipice
a child is astonished by the ocean
