Embracers meet with more embracers on the street.
They say, “Hold me, dear stranger. Grab on to me.
We’re carrying our years around us, or they’re chasing down us.
We’re all here at the same time.
Can we wake and be fine?
Have we still got time to wake and be fine??”
Villains on the creep and killers in the crowd
are carving apart our childhood house.
Lovers in their sheets, dreaming lovers
sweetly turn in their sleep all under sunbeams.
Everybody’s crashing, running. calling out
the coming of things they kind of can see.
Someone said to me, “It’s just a dream.
Why don’t you wake up and you’ll see?
It’s fine
In thouse miles racing over endless fields of snow
(you already heard, you already know),
the rescue party finally lost their hearts,
and then they shattered their bones,
and then they died all alone.
The ships all float from beaches by themselves
above the hot afternoons. (Goodbye, you balloons!)
Adrift above indifferent clouds. Our hearts are crashing loudly
on some rock where the gulls whine,
”Wake and be fine.
You’ve still got time to wake and be fine.
G
You can be 
Am
fine.“
