The Years

(The etymological meaning of the word 'nostalgia' is 'pain of return')

in what empty drunken years
did you live for me?

with which words did you fight?

how many loves murdered you?

what enthusiasms did you waste
dying of nothing?

how many Liverpools spat at you
from infernal heavens?

what tongues failed you?

what sleep evaded you?
what pain of return
tortures you?
