going

down through the last hall,
past the music,
past the dancing girls,
down through the last hall
past the last New Year
the last hurrah!
past the flight of the
hummingbird,
past the last kiss,
the last fix and flow,
the last new watch,
the last nights sleep,
the last orange,
the last war,
the last last
last
word.
