Where Words Fail, Friends Don't

apparently i don't know my abc's.


kids’ grubby fingerprints are on the window
through a glass darkly i see the city
is treading water, treading water, treading water
treading water

and thundering underground with sleepwalkers and punks and business suits
all in a bricolage, our lives are on pause
thank god, thank god, thank god
thank god

and then you come home
and then we roam the streets below
where words fail, friends don’t
we could sing the alphabet together
and i bet that we’d both feel better
