are you here by mistake as well?
did the universe misinform you?
were you wandering all alone when you were caught up in this storm?
welcome to the wrong place:
here you’re quite alone
save I and she
and all the others
in this city you can feel it, eating at your soul —
a silence creeping in and under perfect light white-washing, white-washing.
so run away!
like I’ve tried
but if you find your way out
let me not know.
