A Human Flood

Chapter Two Of X: The Human Condition

A HUMAN FLOOD

calm down
calm down
I’ll get up late
by myself

calling distant worlds
on the telephone
washing different faces
in the glass

caught out
in the snow
summer rain
a human flood

calm down
calm down
they mean no harm
by harming you

wishing different words
were spoken
grey familiar places
pale my eyes

and every smell
in this hood
brings back memories
of a human flood

calm down
calm down
they mean no harm
harming you

calm down
calm down
I’m assimilating you
into myself

calm down
calm down
I’m trading you
with myself
