Watch Her Disappear

Blurred portrait of a young womanLast night I dreamed that I was dreaming of you
And from a window across the lawn I watched you undress
Wearing your sunset of purple tightly woven around your hair
That rose in strangled ebony curls
Moving in a yellow bedroom light
The air is wet with sound
The faraway yelping of a wounded dog
And the ground is drinking a slow faucet leak
Your house is so soft and fading as it soaks the black summer heat

And you dance into the shadow of a black poplar tree
And I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
_ Tom Waits (Watch Her Disappear, excerpt) _

Press record and then erase

Man in front of a big window wall…I’m so fuckin alone
I’m so fucking alone
o.k. o.k. this is me
o.k. o.k. this is me
evening breeze river east
music mix salsa speed
metal rap lonely sax
open jeep with the speakers back
rock n roll band practicin’
shakin those walls next to me
everybody is in a dream
of what they want and who they need
to feel all right to be alive
to wipe out words that they despise
from a thunder brain
that’s quick to pain
and only once to live again
when that set up gets in the way
the dreamin brain will make a play
to wipe it all outta space
press record and then erase
cuz there’s something here
they gotta face
everybody in this place
it’s the same for everyone
they gotta figure out something
they gotta figure out themselves
they gotta figure on their own
they gotta figure out, ok ?
o.k. o.k. o.k. o.k.
I’m so fuckin alone
I’m so fuckin alone
oh no, being alone
I’m so fucking alone
o.k. o.k. so this is me
o.k. o.k. so this is me
this is me
o.k.
I’ m not even sure what she wanted
I ‘m not even sure what she wanted
_ Iggy Pop (Fu**in’ alone, excerpt) _
