Darkness creeping in
Season of open windows
Up the hill backwards

Scary monsters and
Super creeps keep me running
Almost forty years

Was I only nine
Cassette playing on headset
The school year starting

Election looming
Pieces of teenage wildlife
Scream like a baby

Now a memory
The first abyss of twilight
It’ll make me sad

So I’ll dance my life away
