and absent now, let us hope
the bargains of the heart
the haggling of the heart

negotiations of the heart
broken or otherwise
absent now
the self-heard cries
of cowardly regret

go firmly to the window
there will come no other chance
your final pleasure

and let your final pleasure be
to hear the strange procession
moving past

it was your life it touched
it was your path it crossed
and say goodbye to Alexandra leaving
say goodbye to Alexandra lost
