we'll stumble out into the amber
you and I
into that secret sodium glow
where laughter
echoes louder than you laughed it
comes back at you

look how the sky mocks volume
i'll say
and how the trees breathe the night

city boy
you'll say and smile
and shake your head
and lead me on
and hush me on the stairs
