‘Did something happen overnight?’ – February 2016
Did something happen overnight?
Who changed the bulbs in all the lights?
Everything looks different here.
I thought I used to live here once.
Why is everybody screaming?
And nothing even sounds like words.
Why the fuck are you still shouting?
I thought we spoke in language once.
And why can’t you just walk straight out?
That always makes me want to cry.
Why can’t you walk like people do?
Can’t you just—can’t you just try?
And this god-roar wind that blows so hard
It might just tear you apart.
You’re hardly even wearing pants.
You used to wear pants, once.
What happened here overnight?
