"Svetlana sucks lemons across from me
and I am progressing abominably
And I don't know my own way to the sea
But the saltiest sea knows it's own way to me
The city that turns, turns protracted and slow
and I find myself toeing th'embarcadero
and I find myself knowing the things that I knew
which is all that you can do on this side of the blue.
And Jamie has eyes black and shiny as boots
and they march at you, two by two, re-loo re-loo
when she looks at you, you know she's no where near through
which is all that you can do on this side of the blue
While across the sky sheet the impossible birds
in a steady, illiterate movement homewards.
