she’s got a run in her hose and it’s bracingly cold and then they run to the car and when they get to the door he says i’m kind of messed up i don’t think i can drive and a part of her wants to say he’s gonna be fine but then he drops his keys so she takes it as a sign to hail down a cab and get some peace of mind she’s got a seven forty five and another at nine and she ain’t gonna be on time he staggers with a cup being led around by a cigarette butt but then he’s shaken by the sound of the bands warming up and it sounds pretty good for a couple of punks early risers say they love the first breaks of dawn but it ain’t worth braving when the night’s been drawn out so so long i got to be at work before the light and i’m nervous about it nervous about it tonight she’s standing there alone and looking at the moon that’s lighting up the street like a hospital room thinking of the lines of her bones on the screen thinking of the smudge thinking what it could mean tomorrow can wait it’s coming too soon and her head is floating up like a black balloon the light is pouring down on the roofs of the town like it could make the clock stop
