And if not here
Then where else
Might one live
In tomorrow?
Underneath all the spikes
Left of memory's sprawl?
The closer I look
Everyday at the doors!
But it felt weird
Just walking out
Not sure if
I came close
Minor deity
To you spoke:
"when first faced with it
Take the compliment
More directions
To follow"
Current sympathies
Have been of use to me
Got sad, did something
Of note
Helps to worry sometimes
The closer I look
Every day at the walls
Have they warned you?
Are they going to?
On a bus to Duluth
Heard about the scene there
The closer I look
The more it takes away
The closer I look
The further it feels/seems today/away
The more it feels/seems ok
Have they shown you
Streets off the main?
Me? I Don't know the way!
Lead me there!
Lead me to
Lead me to
Some practical use
Lead me to
Lead me to
