when in williamsburg

nothing would quite compare
to living the dream as it once stood
but it has crumbled
like a forgotten neighbourhood cafe
coffee curdling in a pot
and a crust forming on the sugar
streets with grand names
but nobody to walk them

i lost that brownstone
paradise
with a piano in the lounge
and someone always at the keys
