Untitled Verses for Distances

From on our street
We disappeared
In 19 months
Maybe the clear 

But some are gone
It’s someone’s fault
He shrugged and walked
That stupid walk

Sometimes I wave
Across the yard
When Frank waves back
It looks so hard 

I saw a deer
Last night at dusk
I said don’t go
He said I must

But I recall
When we would smile
We stayed like that
For quite a while

Now summer’s here
And autumn too
Ice everywhere 
No spring in view

We’re all alone
We’re only songs
The band packed up
We sang along

The stars are dead
The night has blurred
One buffalo
Said have you heard?

We’re beautiful
Cause we’re so blind
We think we’re brave
We fall in line

I stood outside
You by my side
We watched the snow
You said let’s try

It makes no sense
It’s such a gift
But we let go
And just like this

And just like this
You understand
It’s up to us
There is no plan

And just like this
You understand
It’s up to us
Woman and man

But I recall
When we would smile
We stayed like that
For quite a while
