in manhattan we reserved an iceberg to moisten the living room's rug. It's Christmas, whisky is a consolation prize like the number of the muse we'll never call, for Iceland, for modesty, for our pianist's hands. I told you dear, the transatlantic that would take us has left and our shadows are hung in a bridge that doesn't know about holidays and their aesthetic hangover hours.
