Baby, It's Cold Outside

This was the freezing rain we had in Florida. Now that's cold.

Stagnant Time Pieces

the plates pushed across the table
crumbs on the floor
stagnant time pieces
he paces

watch for the train as it rolls by
tethered to the night
quarter to nine
drawn and quartered
ten steps behind
hurried hounds
harbor great debts
ten cent note
wet, wet, wet

turn around the corner
follow me down
turn around the corner
follow me
torn pieces
he paces

watch for the rain as it falls now
against the window pane
against the grain
step lightly
tread lightly
not on me

take time dear friend
take time
time to take in the future
past behind
the wall, the wall, the wall
turn to me now
turn around me now
tumble down shack
tumble down, tumble down
I slept
I slept
cold and wet
I slept
I slept
forget i mentioned
forget i came
forget, forget , get , get, get

the glasses are emptied
wine spilled on the gown
the jester is sleeping
the jester is dead
take the watch to the train delayed
take the ticket to the window in the rain
remember the ticket
remember the TICKET
the window is open
the window is open
a door

he paces
he paces

the floor

Lovely Ladies who languish by the sea.
Why do you wait for me?
Bronze bodies,black floppy hats with cigarettes to light.

Lovely Ladies, do you see the clouds?
As they float by like sailing ships, as your kids wander round.
White billows, silver rimmed linings with dreams to catch.

Lovely Ladies who dig their feet into the sand.
When will you go home?
Fast cars, red hot asphalt with places to go.

Lovely Ladies who languish
Lovely Ladies in anguish
Lovely Ladies by the sea
by the sea
by the sea
Lovely ladies who languish
Why do you wait for me?

Slam. Sitting straight up in bed. Ears straining.

The Phone

The sunlight filtered through the curtains, heavy with dust.
She stirred quietly. The phone rang in the other room.
