lyrics

Crumpled papers rolled into balls
A stained phone no one calls
There’s a tray of meat on the side
And a car waiting in the drive
Three coats with no pockets in a line
Next to a clock stuck at one time
A pool of beer stains the floor
Beside shoes that point to the door
There is dust freckling the air
And the sink is blocked with strands of hair
A photo no one recognizes on display
An outdated menu from a sad café
Cracked cups half-filled
One on its side from where the beer spilled
Sheets pulled back from the bed
A table marked with ash and pencil lead
The meat is hard and curled at the edge
A group of ants collect on a window ledge
Drawers hastily pulled shut
A small speck of blood from a paper cut
And I don’t know
Whether to leave or arrive
(The mysteries that keep us up at night)
