next song on is venus in furs

 somewhere in Delaware 
 a bridge is being defaced
 by two lovers pressed against 
 concrete by cops. in some ways
 even hiccups are terminal.
 a weirdo with a pack of cigarettes 
 and a tanned leather jacket
 is watching from the sidelines
 like some gimped referee.
 blinding the stars 
 the city evolves to night time.
