Long shadows and gunpowder eyes.

Blasting Neko Case's "Middle Cyclone."
Despite its "long shadows and gunpowder eyes,"* it makes me happy.
Comforts me.

Just as I'm comforted by this day that is seemingly getting brighter than the dreary morn I woke up to.

The rainy day's drear
slowly drips from the wires
going house to house,
our only connection save
for a curt nod, or nothing.

* A delicious line from my favorite song on the album, "Prison Girls."
