not tonight josephine

in an army’s strength therein
lies the denouement
from here you’re haunting me
by the seine so beautiful
only not to be of use – impossible

so strange, victory – 1,200 spires
the only sound, moscow burning
empty like the tuileries
like a dream vienna seems
only not to be of use – impossible

in the last extremity – to advance
or not to advance –
i hear you laughing

even still you’re calling me
“not tonight, not tonight

not tonight”


- Tori Amos / Josephine
