where are you nevets?
im deep in a dream, muse
im asleep at the bottom of a black chasm
im so far away…
wake up nevets its time you were about
(a phone rings)
from a million light years
my consciousness rises
up n up nup nup
ascending thru my hopes n fears
my past lives
my secret ambitions
up n up nup i go
rising up to myself
my hand goes out
picks up the phone
“steve, hello….”
am i steve?
where am i?
i was so far away
somewhere in a world of pure idea
somewhere out there so far
somewhere in here so deep
“steve its roger kaputnik from the miliapolis bugle…”
auto pilot switches on
oh hi roger…
an interview follows
under the milky way this
under the milky way that
ahh got the wrong room
under the milky way is in room 1313
rogers got it all confused
he must think its 1986
he must be thinking of the outfield n frankie goes to hollywood
n thompson twins n all the other detritus from those times
did i have to be pulled from my black place
to reminisce about this olde albatross…?
we finish our conversation
roger aint a badde guy
i end up likin’ him
i hang up my bone white phone
i sit up n look around
im in a hot room
in a king size bed
i could sleep in it sideways n still have enuff room
we need one o these at home
we could get everyone in this bed
the doodles, the bumper, the twillies, me n duckling, the lot
the a.c. is switched off
its either ice station zebra
or tropical humidity
and i prefer the latter
i hate freezing a.c.
look around the room nevets, what do ya see
i see my ipod sittin’ in its lil charger
i see my lapptopp
i see my suitcase, an explosion of unwashed clothes
n gifts n bits n pieces
i see the tv set i will never switch on
i open the curtains
outside my room is an empty indoor swimming pool
nevets HATES indoor swimming pools
beyond that a riot of green trees
im in the south
im in ….(thinks hard)
im in…durham, north carolina
nothing would be finer than to be in carolina……
(at bully high we changed the lyrics to sixty niner)
in the mor-or-orning…..
wow im in carolina in the morning
well i think that maybe there are finer things…
