Sealing me in like an astronaut, you go play doctor while it’s still dark. I take my mother’s face some places she would never. I’m gonna pay like an astronaut for my idiot love & I know it. / Well I’m payin’ right now, just walkin’ around. I’m payin’ right now in the flash of the street—where you knelt low with yr stethoscope & it fastened to me like a leech. / Mold comin’ in through yr pictures. Bat silhouettes singin’ over our heads. Red wine lips in the summer make you look like yr freezing to death. / Now I’m gonna sleep. Now I’m gonna sleep.
