then I heard a scream, and another
and I stood on the balcony and
listened and a pale figure
swam underwater
behind the frosted window
my lady
and with trembling hands
my lady
I phoned the security
but the number didn’t work
and I heard or didn’t hear
more screams or sounds
my lady
it was a woman and a man,
my lady
and the world outside was night
and the night was moving
films were being shot
on locations like the empty plot here
my lady
and the stairs, and the cul de sac
and the dolly slid down the street
with a TV anchor in tow
and the cables snapped taut
my lady
and I remember the feeling
of the texture of the curtains
under my fingers
my lady
I remember you
my lady
