Blackout

If a Tree Falls by Nick Cave

Do you remember what our tomorrows looked like before the reality of walls? Before we were an impossible lostness trapped in the wings of things that neither moved nor stayed. A long time ago in would-be-phantoms to live for.

Before sadness was a skin you couldn’t unthread from the body.

How long are our names ours if only memory holds them?
