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?

I was.
