Here where the guidebooks are wrong
Here where the side streets
Are thronged in a daze
Of either touring or trade
We came to hide

But capitals all seem alike
It’s not as though architects only design
Toys for empires

I explained on the phone
From our bed
Lying prone
That we’d come away to get close

The hangover wakes me on time
With you on the balcony
Sorting the drying
Ringing down tickets for
A cathedral tour

Where we fell behind from the group
And sat in a side chapel
Sharing a pew
Bought a candle from new
But ours didn’t light
Just like our Little Mite
Miscarried into the quiet

I say ‘Hi’ With a squeeze of your hand
The both of us feeling
As sensitive as
Two small peeled oranges
Just finding our way

The calendar gets a new date
There are things to unwish for
And plans to unmake
Two hearts feeling their weight

As the wind from the bay
Blows a bend in the rain
Soaking our intimate pain
