I dreamt of a bookshop
I dreamt of the sea
I dreamt of a bus
That was waiting for me
I dreamt of a theatre
I dreamt of a bar
I dreamt of the hand of Fatima

I dreamt I fell backwards
Into your arms
I awake and I fall
Through a hole in the dark
To a boy in a Cadillac
With a bicycle in the back

All the while I am stalled
On this 48 bus
On the road up ahead
Is a horse-drawn hearse
And a boy at the bus stop
Crossing himself

I sought out the bookshop
I sought out the sea
I followed the signs
That I thought were left for me

I listened to widows
I listened to shells
I listened to all of the stories they tell
Of a girl on a carousel
Wishing herself free
To ride over that grey and honest sea


from Snow, Stars and Public Transport, released May 12, 2017
