He Gives Someone Something

When you least expect it,

on a day when you can’t stop falling.

Wanting something quickly

in a life divided by zero.

So send a letter full of rumours

to keep collars hot and bothered.

Cross bridges into the city

where rivers slow gentrifcation.

These things shouldn’t happen here,

but you’ve been gettting rave reviews

and you can’t help yourself.

She is dreaming

far away from here.

Lady like a late night lullaby,

somewhat sleep inducing,

never remembered.

And because you are

hot, bothered

and falling,

they will never understand,

that you just gave someone something.
