Light From Christmas Strands

lyrics

Winifred, emergency! Inger gulped down Demerol. Not sure how much—enough to frighten me. "Enough for four of me, could be," spoken as her volume rose. Shouting now as I asked, "Sit still for a photograph?" The light is low and I don't have a flash, sit still your face'll blur. Light from Christmas strands is beautiful. When we got here you were beautiful, but now your eyes can't focus. Please not another drink. I think the picture's wrecked. She's in the living room playing guitar. Can't see her through the crowd, that's her voice though, singing in a key, higher than this noise. "What do you think, Winifred?" "I had a friend who did the same thing. He took too many pills, and he turned out fine. Just couldn't sign his name for three weeks—his hands shook. I can't watch you through another round. I can't take another photograph. This moment's not supposed to last past this night. This party is showing me something that I didn't want to see.
