J. Dell photo shoot with some Tom Waits

Last night I dreamed that I was dreaming of you
And from a window across the lawn I watched you undress

Wearing your sunset of purple tightly woven around your hair
That rose in strangled ebony curls
Moving in a yellow bedroom light

The air is wet with sound
The faraway yelping of a wounded dog
And the ground is drinking a slow faucet leak

Your house is so soft and fading as it soaks the black summer heat
A light goes on and the door opens
And a yellow cat runs out on the stream of hall light and into the yard

A wooden cherry scent is faintly breathing the air
I hear your champagne laugh
You wear two lavender orchids
One in your hair and one on your hip

A string of yellow carnival lights comes on with the dusk
Circling the lake with a slowly dipping halo
And I hear a banjo tango
And you dance into the shadow of a black poplar tree
And I watched you as you disappeared

I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
