Improvised Histories

Link to website update

Nausicaa 369

Others join the day
While we watch the royal rain
Today’s payments light our way
And we, noble, turn back
To some dark plan
The mention of which brings ships
And we lose this jeweled country
To jumpers and customers and supermen
Who fly home at dinnertime
Who bring a better twinkle to tomorrow’s eye
Who pass through these streets on their way to somewhere else

Who rub whiskey and salt into these old wounds.

I am captivated by this title. I have been turning the phrase around in my head for days...
