Some say time was invented in 1847

Shel Raphen

Tie me down to the four corners of the earth

As the cruel morning sun

displaces our knot


The smell of you displaces all resistance

The way you hold me still as if to keep me

How dare the El-Train come to take you


Could we lay a little while longer

Listen to the soundtrack of the city

Keep the window open, please

Keep ourselves cold so we won't let go


But go, lest you be late

Lest your boss grow cold and lonely

Do not lose your life for me
