later at night
when your eyes get wide
and your sight-lines die for the moment

holding on to a closing song
you can tell me news,
but i don't want to know it

no one's hooking it up today
players past from yesterday
to fix his open eyes on something else
three blocks over from yesterday
the people and the planets struggle
hard to keep their shaking hands closed
holding only chords that matter the most

later at night
when your eyes get wide
when the motor on the mind
is moving slower
racing eyes
fixed on guys
in the alley hitching the
wind break for the warmth

no one's hooking it up today
players past from yesterday
the fix his open eyes on something else
three blocks over from yesterday
the people and the planets
struggle hard to keep their shaking hands closed
all the wishes that were wearied
are posed
until the brightness pulls our eyelids closed
