Our hometown coffee shop

covered in murals

Reminding us Rome

wasn't built in a day

A palpable temporariness

sweeps over me

This will all be gone


Thirty years

in the blink of an eye

The power of music

the Motorcycle Drive-By

Enjoying the morning glow

letting the coffee get cold

A stillness Elliot Smith


Once again she was right

showing the way

Simple solutions

to a perfect harmony

Finally at a place to hear

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
