him:
“for every life...”

her:
“forgo the parable.”

him:
“seek the light.”

her:
“...my knees are cold.”

(running home, running home,

her:
“go find another lover;
to bring a... to string along!”

“with all your lies, you’re still very loveable.”

“I toured the light; so many foreign roads for Emma, forever ago.”
