Apophenia

from by Robin Allender

lyrics

In a blend of voices a stranger becomes
stranger still in a familiar town,
a forgotten memory, I'm almosting it,
a glimpsed existence, a state of grace.

And the river flows through a town we know
as if it meant something, all love, all beauty.

Past the station, lit like a dream,
the train below leads to decades ago.
Expose desire's rich radius
on a blank background. Days fall away.

And the river flows through a town we know
as if it meant something, all love, all beauty.

And it feels like a dream,
the rain became me (the wren in the rain)
and it feels like a long walk home
and it feels like a long walk home
and it feels so unending
or it feels like an ending.

Why must time expand and contract?
This photo has become five years old.
