oh Umberto show me where you sleep
in a clapped out hovel open to the winds
with a tattered stash of pornography
and the empty bottles that chime through your dreams

oh Umberto nurse me in my sickness
bring me those safe boiled liquids
bring me those fresh deep-lake-caught fishes
promise me those infinite good wishes

oh Umberto where are your wife and child
you say 'right over there is where my best friend died
and i'd do anything now just to get through this night'
we're both waiting for the great rebel poet to arrive
... passing through the Nica skies

you say 'i never raised my hand on her in violence'
you say it again then return to silence
and all that surrounds us is night on the island
in the pines and the palms and the fireflies expiring

oh Umberto let's go back to the library
with its store of all rebel poetry
we can spin the globe
and i'll show you my country
but i'm afraid i could never take you with me
