Kanye West Songs

Times Square in late afternoon.
I have traded the moon for the flashing lights,
neon billboards,
Kanye West songs.

They welcome me with pinks and blues.
Hues of my old hurt,
now amplified.

I never let you sleep, remember?
We had so little time,
the city drunkenly cat-calling me.

My neon lover,
your light was too much.
It blinded me
blindfolded me.

One of these days.
I’d like to fall asleep
and in love with you again.
