In the darkness,
No one stops to say,
Hello, hello,
How you going?

Strangers gesture
At big screens,
Hooray for the cripple!
Hooray for the human microscope!

Now are we only carving sheep, taking vitamins, out to lunch with the in-laws, licking stamps, getting headaches?

At the bottom of the sea,
Abstinence needs quiet company,
Is that the tight dress that you wore now all in pieces on the floor?
Come on, let’s get to the bottom of it!

In the darkness, we just seem to slip away . . .

In the darkness,
Sweeping sounds precede the wind
Cutting in and out of children
Yelping in the snow

And now that the soldier is home
And he tags along with all of the others
Do they need him around?
Do they want him around anymore?

Oh, are we only milking beef, letting violins in, weeping beyond sunken buildings?

It’s just a graceful full-body sneeze
and the cable car that’s stuttering ‘neath your knees!
