lyrics

The other night, I met a man with one hand,
he asked me to roll a joint for him;
it’s not easy to roll anything
with one hand.

He had some kind of a face
with a Venusian mask on it;
some kind of a mask
imposed on his face,

waiting for the G train at Hoyt-Schermerhorn
at four in the morning,

where my dog
and everybody waiting on the train platform sat and stared

at everything, or something,
becoming nothing,

a subway conductor in the corner
moved the universe with her hands, and said,

“somebody just walked into this train station,
jumped onto the train tracks,

and just, like that, started
flatlining,”

and my dog,
and everybody waiting on the train platform sat and stared

at everything, or something,
becoming nothing,

a subway masturbator in the corner
milked himself with his hands, and said,

“I’ve never seen anything like this before;
but I’ve never seen anything

waiting for the G train at Hoyt-Schermerhorn
at four in the morning.”
