ghost town reunion (jazz lyrics)

Message Kim Cassidy

same faces, but

strangers lie within.
same town, but streets
are all renamed.
the park has lost its
memory of
children's laughter.
the slides and swings are
missing now,
the grassy field is pitted
with the broken glass
of a thousand friday
gone by, by, by
old witch on the corner
finally died.
now there's something
right inside.
the white face peers
from second story
window panes,
with phone in hand to
dial up
the local nazi squad.
(how ee-eerily odd!)
your best bet is to
just become
a shadow now.
and if you must, then
be a gust of
silent wind.
keep yourself invisible
to cross-hair schemes.
hold your breath and
let the searchlights
pass you by, by, by
pass you by, by, by
