The Sons of Sunday Headlines

from Physics Says by Jon Hughes



The Sons of Sunday Headlines

Lady XYZ is walking east to west on
Tuesday for her second in the week;
And the church bell's ringing serotonin
For the others who can comprehend the street;
And her mother stands behind the smoky
Yellow shade of every window that she sees;
And out of all the figures of her spatial
Recognition she's the only memory;

I felt lost for her and now
I'm losing all my nerve.

Naked soldiers eulogised,
"The Sons of Sunday Headlines"
For the fourth day in the week;
And obituaries of the
Dead and dying architects are
Buried underneath;
Now the telephone is ringing--
Bad news on the interstate for given family--
And out of all the brothers and the
Sons of Sunday headlines I'm the
Only it could be;

I felt lost for them and now
I'm head beyond the bend...

I felt lost for them and now
I can't feel anything.
