Finer Points

from Magnet School by BOY FRIENDS

lyrics

as nature’s all around
the city dream
floods me like a shadow in a valley
crackling underfoot
glass like snow
but the tomcats’ still cry is always friendly

the sky is cloudless with breath and crawls like a cricket
the song will keep its own watch

some prefer the view
from up real high
like a balcony or a rooftop or a tree
i’ve run in circles all day here
but look
no one leaves unless you meet them in the street

the fear of safety in groups is what keeps us violent
the shops retreat from the street with their floor-length glass skirts
the treasure glows from the ground to pique my attention
but now who’s been here before?

it may be i am surfing corners turning to get in the way
to watch shadows in the street move back and forth in perfect time
but i’d rather walk beneath a brick umbrella than a pane of glass
i’ll amble down the underground and watch the block fade as i pass
