Illusions

Hello Neighbor

over there
across the street
there's a flat
I've no idea who lives there


there's a girl
with long blond hair there's a man
bald with tribal tattoos


every night
nine o'clock
they'll forget
to close the blinds


They'll become
affectionate
Intimate
but do they know I'm watching?


oh
watching from across the street


I check the time
and then I wait
for the show
it has become a habit


to end each night
by watching you
acting out
your private performance


I'm
watching from across the street


Suddently
What is that
standing there
Something meant for me?


"We know you're there, come over here"
said the note
In their bedroom window


Oh
Should I cross the street?
