A View Near Tivoli, painting by Thomas Cole, 1832
Hold my hand tight.
Right here by the heat.
Right here, you see, you hear that heat seep into your eye and face?
You see that sky here, red and black and cold?
Shout out, little man: Shout out:
Flak, flak, flak, for attack!
Here now: see: they’re watching.
