Walking home alone in the dark listening to the soundtrack of Amélie

darkness plays Russian roulette
I sidestep
with a clap
over
each line
make believing
protection

orchestrating
my arms east and west
into a heartfelt heave
curtsying
racing
homeward
into questions for you

do you know the street I live on?
would you sojourn on the corner with me?
whirl with me when the rain falls hard?
sing a nonsensical language just for the fun of it?

be dizzy

forget

be forlorn

fall into my arms

ride a bicycle
on a lake of ice

sing
without a tongue

hold me
like a cello

believe
when reason
ridicules

shake
hands with a demon
on the yellow brick road

laugh

cut my hair when it is long?

read our love story
from the inside of your dirty sleeve

dream
dream
dream

place your fingers on a piano
play
or pretend

dream
dream
dream

undress me
in the moonlight

touch

really

touch

touch

Walking home alone in the dark listening to the soundtrack of Amélie
