Down Desire Avenue – Stina Nordenstam

where all the pilots go
Line in a bar when day is thru
keeping the world in a place below

Tall second rated moviestars
step from their overcoloured truth
out thru a side door right into
Desire Avenue

Empty faces, silly walks
Coming in from the tight-rope dance
Men judging balance above all
looking down on their shaking hands

It’s coming up it’s hard to breathe
and I think of you
I’m going down but nothing’s cheap
down Desire Avenue

One bite of cold and one of heat
A sip of lust a sip of pain
A careless way to cross the street
