after the ball drops and the glitter is swept away,
the people have all gone home and they’re dreaming of frozen places.
waking with the sun in my face on another half-finished day.
but i didn’t have to go to work so i carved something small from all my dreaming.
the party stopped our sense of time,
now our livers are burning off the wine.
we’re waking up, we’re still alive.
and the clock’s ticking softly on every bedside.
even if we’re just singing into space,
i want to do it loud and long as i can and bury those thoughts of what could have been.
