The dangling conversation - Joan Baez

 

It's a still life water color

 

Of a now late afternoon

 

As the sun shines through the curtained lace

 

And shadows wash the room

 

And we sit and drink our coffee

 

Couched in our indifference

 

Like shells upon the shore

 

You can hear the ocean roar

 

In the dangling conversation

 

And the superficial sighs

 

The borders of our alliance

 

And you read your Emily Dickinson

 

And I my Robert frost

 

And we note our place with book markers

 

That measure what we've lost

 

Like a poem poorly written

 

We are verses out of rhythm

 

Couplets out of rhyme

 

In syncopated time

 

And the dangled conversation

 

And the superficial sighs

 

Are the borders of our alliance

 

Yes we speak of things that matter

 

With words that must be said

 

Can analysis be worthwhile

 

Is the theater really dead

 

And how the room is softly faded

 

And I only kiss your shadow

 

I cannot feel your hand

You're a stranger now unto me

 

Lost in the dangling conversation

 

And the superficial sighs

 

In the borders of our alliance
