Fifty Shades of May
When the Day Goes to Sleep
Metro to Heaven
Get The Groove
Not My City
Return Home
Vox Populi
This City Has Flair
Past Is Past
Two Sides of a Coin
We Can Make It
Not Enough at All
You Belong to Me

About an evening in spring

Fifty Shades of May

Afternoon and late, tired people drudged and slaved
Hasten home, overworked, meeting greeting well-behaved
A life of prisoners of circumstance
But dreaming of a whirlwind romance
With music, wine and dance
Streets in faded grey
This are the fifty shades of May

A white dove, looks like peace, on a philosopher's memorial
Tourists taking selfies, selfies at the city hall
Ignoring dunning magisterial words [majis'tireal]
A sign reads: Do not feed the birds
The gag in every pic
When sunshine made my day
This are the fifty shades of May

A store sign, wrought iron, iron rusty brown
A bovine tubby crashing pulls the scrollbar down
Has a steady job as alteration tailor
But wished he was a weather-beaten sailor
On a river cruise
When the evening fades away
This were the fifty shades of May

Lines that did not make it:
Never gambled with his life
Never cheated on his wife
