communion

horses running
with her miles away
laughing with a 
fool

Bach and the hydrogen bomb
and her miles away 
laughing with a
fool

the banking system
bumper jacks
gondolas in Venice
and her miles away
laughing with a
fool

you've never quite 
seen a stairway before
(each step looking at you separately)
and outside
the newsboy looking
immortal
as the cars go by
under a sun
like an enemy
and you wonder
why it's so hard
to go crazy--
if you're not already
crazy

until now
you've never seen a 
stairway that looked like
a stairway
a doorknob that looked like
a doorknob
and sounds like these sounds

and when the spider comes out
and looks at you 
finally
you don't hate it
finally
with her miles away 
laughing with a 
fool
