It’s incredible what one burst pipe could do.

It’s incredible what one man and one woman could do.

The doors close behind the waiter, but they close behind you

just like all doors closing.


I’ve grieved with the bees over our parting

now I will try to enjoy what occurs before it

right up to the moment when I no longer know

what to do with the time I have left


and so I go to sleep and someone stands over me saying:

snakes sleep like this, curled in a ball like kittens or small children,

see, for this is the position in which you’re taken to heaven.
