we decided to love
the dusk locks our neon phantoms

we skipped delicious meals
colored nightmare fills our naps

we’re heading east in christmas
winter captures our warm tragedies

the pinnacle of our tales
are truths of huge fortunes stuck on wheels

over the horizon of oriental space
pledging our clouds in the sky

gamboling among the children in hats
the streets caught us in benches of gaiety

we lost a long, smoky chimney
stolen by the folly of a beast
