lyrics

free radicals / lease Cadillacs / take sabbaticals / drink sazeracs
good citizens / lithium batteries / take Ritalin / go to matinees
post-colonials / invent dystopias / act ceremonial / deny their phobias
new critics / in their citadels / drive Honda Civics / take sleeping pills
Homo sapiens / in mass hysteria / build football stadiums / and rest areas

and something here isn’t quite right, think it might be the water
ao lock up your libraries, let loose your daughters.
Sing a song for your great-grandmother, she went there before.
Let us be the ones who will walk through that door.

old historians / sear plastic hairnets / date neo-Victorians / Play bass clarinets
perennial favorites / in diaspora / elect their saviours / bake Alaska
a hotel lobby / West 23rd / a great love affair / feft without a word
midwestern poets / we do not celebrate/ are still inchoate / may reincarnate

so let us make of our lives something stranger than fiction.
Let our hearts be fore’er tempest-tossed.
Let us saturate lines with our symptoms, our signs, our addictions.
Let us be the ones on whom nothing is lost.

feminist lithographer / telephone directory / great stenographers / of the 20th century
