lyrics

Ascent
-for Elizabeth Bishop

Heat and cacophony rising to meet
Your eyes and waking dreams
Pulsing freeways pushed to sound and speed
With steel and gasoline
Shaking sleep and stumble slowly look up
Horizon says you must
Time and mind have given wholly to trust
This world is serious

And with the nodding wind’s consent
These days in endless ascent

Water sand and stone commanded to bow
This steam will show them how
Shoulder standing on commodity
This life was meant for me

Every wasted step that flooded these streets
Have swamped necessity
Numbing undertows are crumbling to quit
Their words are desperate
