i have reached the stage
where i am so exhausted
i cannot fall asleep
everyone speaks a language
i cannot comprehend
sirens howling in the night
(because the night
belongs to lovers)
scratching the words
across my arm, incantations
to the wind, a train
shouting at some damn fool
sitting on the tracks
maybe i should move
