About The Trash

There’s smoke in the air and music
pounding
in my ears
There’s cracks in the floor
and glass under my feet
There’s hope for me and for you
Only we must meet

Tell me how it ought to be
Tell me what you want to see
Tell me.

Dance with me and watch me fall
in love
Dance with me and we will be
Dance with me.

Crowds of people
Sounds of music
atmosphere all its own

Send me to the outer home
Send me a picture-postcard
Send me your love.

Author’s Note: The Trasheteria is/was a bar in Guelph colloquially known as ‘The Trash’
