Autumn of the beauty queen.

You want to stay here,
you never want to get here.

Azure pours down to the river:
it’s just stillness in October.
The river carries the sky.
So gorgeous, it’s boring…

Autumn of the beauty queen.

In bright light, things fade.

The burning skyscrapers fall:
they fall in bright light.

The river carries the sky.
The mirror carries your reflection.

I want to kiss you
until I get bored.

You’re still lovely:
with the willows in the background
marking the course of the river,
and the sky azure, etcetera.

You don’t want to leave here,
but you’ll never be here.

There is still time.

Autumn of the beauty queen.
