The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
Gently, over time, over
My furnishings, like white plaster dust
Falling gently over time.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
A catastrophe! A tragedy!
Gently, over time, over
A minute, an hour, a day, a week,
Over months, years, decades, slowly,
Slowly, over all my furnishings,
Like white plaster dust falling
Slowly, gently over time.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
Gently, over time, over
All my furnishings, like white
Plaster dust, slowly, slowly,
Over my dead body,
Slowly, gently, over time,
Like white plaster dust the sky
Is falling, is falling . . .
