written early in the morning by jake kilroy.

i woke up with thoughts of copenhagen,
breathing in light and exhaling romance.
beyond the seas i've faired and land i've crossed,
there's a city of color with pubs full of mermaids.
at night, the sky glistens as a smashed chandelier.
in the day, the world rounds endless in its airy frontier.
one gorgeous woman charms one generous man.
"you had my attention, but now you have my heart."
bicycles, statues, cafes, operas, affairs - truly,
the summer never dies. it just sleeps through.
and here i am on the west coast of america,
waiting to do absolutely nothing about it.
