nyc: now you can

in dreams you walked around
feeling unnoticed
you never got it, never resurfaced
thought we had solved this

along long roads, dusk till dark
you lean on strangers, making markings
mapping findings
still can’t decide things

take it from someone already cold:
armed in coats you still won’t feel held

i could
show you in a second –
deeper sleeper, learn to wake 
don’t borrow from mistakes i once made

could you
but you
now you’ve got to
ease a frozen shoulder
what will you do when it drops a little colder
drops a little

forgetting dreams your heart once sold
impressive empress you're golden 
break the mould.
