Losing the thread

The faces come out through the wall again,
lockdown town means nothing to them
one more corner to turn and then
more faces come out through the wall again.

They never really went away
I never supposed that they would,
I’m watching them now as they grin at me
I think that they’ve come back for good.

Just a breakdown in lockdowntown
and there’s nothing unusual in that.
