how to overcome gloom

it's well into night now
the district quiet
we must do what we can

clean our heads
before we settle for sleep
for we must be aware

as the noise in the quiet
we will do what can
and not wait tomorrow

there's a conversation
out there with leaves
beyond policy

though the heart sinks
ground is still there
that and time

we'll do and we'll sleep
past the fallacy that
flight takes you somewhere
