Notes on “Death of the Last Romantic”

I.
then we utter
bread and butter
all our waking lives

II.
the last we heard
these sobering words
muttered our goodbyes

III.
autumn leaves fall from the trees
weakened limbs
weakened knees

IV.
yellow hands and yellow heat
yellow on the food we eat

V.
bread and butter, bread and butter
sputtering and die

VI.
bread and butter, bread and butter
kiss your heart goodbye

VII.
then we dream
a dreamless sleep

VIII.
awake, we laugh
asleep, we weep

IX.
bread and butter, bread and butter
sputtering and die

X.
bread and butter, bread and butter
kiss your heart goodbye
