Seattle Listening

Seattle dripping onto me
Decades later, suddenly
Life and electricity
Softened with apricity

Seattle staring down at me
Decades later, suddenly
Warmed up, weakened in the knees
Smile, throw your love at me

Youthful rebellion
Suburban exclusion
The band bangs away to be beyond their idols
One sits listening
Is it one of those dreams
All too real, that you don’t feel ‘til you wake up
And can’t go back
Because it hasn’t happened yet

Seattle looking up at me
Decades later, suddenly
Smell of smoke stuck on the breeze
Whisper something so softly

Seattle melting next to me
Decades later suddenly
Worn out, sleeping peacefully
Dreaming of days like these
