For whom was the song sung?
Not possible yet to say.
Then by whom was the song induced?
It was a song called “Kansas City”
by the singer Damien Jurado
& I’d put it on in the mornings
after I came back in
with my dog from the snows
to dream back the child in the old house
who’d dreamed himself
into a future
that sparked him off on his routes.
But why did it end?
Because I’d said that it had to.
Was it a lie?
