I wish the world fell into silence
And darkness drunk up all the strangers.
We sat on the floor
Elbows on knees
With all the left bottles of champagne
Glasses around us
Queuing to enter our circle of joy
We talked through the night
The words of life
Magic smoked us until the dawn
Two piles of ash.
Smoke twisted around the morning breeze
And took us away over a loch
Words dropping through the mist
Pebbles dissolving in water.
Dispersed with the breeze.
