Watertown

watertown
Variant. Watertown. [1970]. Frank Sinatra. Columbia

THE WALL NEVER FALLS DOWN
in Watertown where my tears pool
and the red herrings clown.

The pain of moving on—
in smalltown darkness stands a fool
by the railroad alone.

The train wails and recedes
back to the never-sleeping joules
that capture restless dreams.
