migration to a town where
tree swallows houses
migration to a town where
tree, swallows, houses

like a mime troupe ( stowin' (?) ),
we're all aging doubles.
we sing,
we danced,
shoes on shoes
to the sound of the spinning
machine.

and we slept arm-in-arm,
so soundly ignoring the outside
sounds of the ongoing horrible scene.

    General CommentThe dancing "shoes on shoes" part probably refers to two people growing and learning how to dance to the sound of an old vinyl player... while the sleeping "arm in arm" refers to these two people just being together while avoiding the horrible-ness of the world
