BYT
YOU KNOW WHEN EVERYTHING RUNS SMOOTHLY,
YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT’S AROUND THE CORNER,
WHAT TO EXPECT AND WHERE YOU’RE HEADING.
AND WHAT YOU THINK YOUR LIFE WILL BE.

SHE STOOD AND TOLD ME SHE WAS LEAVING
AND TIME BEGAN TO SLOW RIGHT DOWN.
I SAW HER LIPS,
I HEARD HER WORDS,
HER SILHOUETTE, I COULDN’T MOVE.

I MEMORISED THE SHAPE OF HER FRAME.
THE WAY HER SKIRT CARESSED HER LEGS.

SHE PACKED A BAG. I ASKED HER WHY.
SHE TOOK A TICKET FROM THE DRAWER.
I ASKED HOW LONG SHE HAD IT PLANNED.
SHE SAID I DIDN’T NEED TO KNOW.
HER SMILE SO WEAK.

KATE
I AM THE BOLTS
THAT HOLD HIS WINGS IN PLACE.
THAT NIGHT WE DANCED I SAW YOUR EYES.
I SAW THAT FREEDOM. THAT FREEDOM.
WERE YOU PRETENDING IT WAS REAL?
YOU WERE ALWAYS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

YOU LOOKED JUST LIKE YOU’D SEEN AN ANGEL.
I HAD, I DO.
I WATCHED YOU SLEEP, YOUR SMILE SO REAL,
YOUR EYES CONTENT, AND I PRETENDED YOU WERE MINE.

ALL THREE
IT’S BEEN A YEAR THIS DOES TAKE TIME.
