the news is out

I tap out the pips on your skin
pausing on the long last one
the hour has struck
there is news
and we have to deal with it
we distract one another for a while
but it’s still there
the news is out
we are out
I tap out the news on your skin
pausing on the long last headline
we both shiver
and hold on tight
