she's asleep now

she's asleep now
tired
the golden dome is spinning
pilgrims are ignorant
i go home
the subway is crowded
they are always there
i didn't buy anything
it was not expensive
it was cheap
very cheap
never mind the glitters
she's asleep now
tired
he was playing it beautifully
we paused to listen
a pumpkin plant in the war front
i take its picture
i walked all the way home
they are everywhere
the headers lie
we talked and talked
the cats ran after us
nobody listens
keep right 
keep right
i go straight
starry night
blue tiles
blue tiles
the whirling trees
never mind the glitters
she's asleep now
tired
i crossed out the misspelled word
we laughed
they are everywhere
nobody listens
the dome is spinning
pilgrims are ignorant
i go straight
starry night
blue tiles
blue tiles
she's asleep now

"She's asleep now" - don't know why, but it sounds eerie !!!
