Viva Nova

Life is not at all sad

For those of us left behind

From love's shattered wrecks

For we have the sunshine

And the radio

The crescent moon

And lonely stars to look to.

 

We do not sleep restlessly

In solitary beds

For we have wine and substances

To deaden the interminable

Empty nights

And to obliterate any remaining

Memories of broken love.

 

Life is not at all sad

For those of us left behid

To recover from betrayal

And abandonment

For we have coffee and cigarettes

To warm our chill mornings

And little girl neighbours

Who talk of dogs

And love our strangeness.

 

Life is not at all sad

For those of us left behind

For we have future loves

And heartbreaks to contemplate

After the tranquility

Of our solitude

Is extinguished.
