In the transit lounge

do not sit on your feet
do not unfreeze
do not unfreeze
is this my soundbite
roger wilco
can concepts dim
if you forget
that you've forgotten
where are you off to
please excuse
my english
pacific palisades
sounds like paradise
what to do
if the pilot
turns blue
over and out

                                                         I’ve
                                                         never
                                                         had
                                                         a
                                                         Strega
                                                                    
                                                                        but
                                                                     the
                                                                     label
                                                                     is
                                                                     attractive

                                                                                 way
 
                                                         I
                                                         like
                                                         a

                                                                     after
