to play (Windows Media)
you had the radio on?
said the man
in the room with the chandelier;
and the girl from the Interstate Zone
wishing she were far from here -
far away from the voice on the phone
whispering in her ear.
perspectives are drawn -
in the rain
you remain as they disappear;
on the screen
lipstick gloss promoting fear -
melt your hair in the underground dawn
wondering why you're here.
