lyrics

"Camilla Bjorn"


Her accent is somewhere between London and Louisiana. Her perfume smells like cigarettes. She has a briefcase, a suitcase, and a purse that could fit a turkey. She dumps it out on the counter and starts to count out change.

She says, “I’m on my way home. But I can’t go home just yet.”

She sits down in the corner and opens up her computer. There is an email waiting there for her. From a fat man with a grey beard, who owns a bakery in South Dakota. It says:

Camilla,

When you gonna try my bread?

She is on her way home, but she can’t go home just yet.

. . . . .

Aberdeen, South Dakota, 1975. A 15-year-old girl gets on a train. Her mother is a memory. Her uncle is a drunk. Her father was gone before she came. Somewhere in Alabama, she inhales a cigarette, and tells someone her name is Josephine. She gets a job at a local library, putting books back on the shelves, where nothing’s what it is but what it means.

. . . . .

She types one word, then deletes it, over and over and over. Dreaming of a man she’s never met. She types:

T-o-m-o-r-r-o-w.

She takes a deep breath, and finally clicks Send.

. . . . .

The sun is setting now, leaving a cotton candy sky. Camilla smokes and waits for a taxi. The cabbie says, “Well, Josephine, where you goin’ today?” She says, “Dave, you know, it’s funny you ask me.”

“I’m on my way home. I’m on my way.”
