Hi Fi Heart

from by golden curtain



The man is late again
kisses her with a broken mouth
and it's not alright
On the trail the water spills
out of the side of the hill
like a wound, or a chorus about a wound,
or just a wound, she thinks
In her room she plays old records
that sizzle between songs
like glass popping under a shoe,
or the street clearing its throat

Learning to draw a hifi heart

Meanwhile someone younger
has run out of ways to get the chance
to say something
At the bakery the cookies are crooked
On the radio the DJ doesn't realise
he's not the point

And the planks in the bridge
by her father's house
are so loose now
when she walks over them,
she has to pretend she isn't there.
