I took the greyhound down empty
and thought
there's no way I'm the only one leaving
this town today
, no way
so much diesel, glass and
steel is moving just for me.
No way I can just
go,

but I did.

John said "It's all worked
out, we're saving cash already."
L.A.? I said. "No. New York,
we'll be there in
a year."

Two years and he's no
where still

of course,
we're all nowhere
still
of course.

Paul is twenty-four and
out of college;
already he discusses
lottery,
already he discusses
inheritance and
what he would build if a little
money
came
through.

I hope they all make New
York or better
but I'll take this nowhere
Minneapolis town.
They'll find out soon enough
there's nowhere any
where,
they'll find out soon enough
these dreams are dead
weight and
the water's
cold.
