lonely little city
with your one
tower too tall,
how’d you manage that?
God didn’t forget about
Babel, but he forgot about
or maybe not.
I mean,
we think we got
these tricky translations
all down pit-pat, but
listen to that
of all the jabberwocky,
like some back-and-forth
that makes plenty of sense
until you learn to listen
oh, lonely little city,
and the heat of summer
coming to beat down on your
what will you do,
what will you do
when you realize there’s no grace
left for you?
