Snow sifted like powdered sugar
On the broken amusement park
Paths cut by cross county skiers
Gliding through Dobroselsky Park

Russian champagne and boxed wine in my veins
And a call on the telephone
I’m going home in the still lingering dark
Still lingering dark

Juice carton bird feeders swinging
With flutters of yellow and red
Stage ruins tagged and graffitied
The sidewalks deserted and dead

Hopped off the fence with a guilty conscience
And a call on the telephone
I’m going home in the slow, trickling dawn
Slow, trickling dawn

Crowds carrying roses, tulips
Clogging Egorov street
Tarps piled with bright gold mimosa sprigs
Petal confetti strewn under my feet

Dumping my allies, severing ties
With a call on the telephone
I’m all alone in the full, tingling sunlight
Full, tingling sun
