1100 Broadway

Goodbye newspapers
Goodbye desks
Goodbye to early mornings
Goodbye to the well-dressed
I wave goodbye to shady characters
Standing in shadows underneath the bridge

Goodbye free donuts
Goodbye friendly smiles
I carry my goodbyes
With me for 30 miles

Goodbye polite corrections
Goodbye morning meetings
Delayed, prolonged
Goodbye phone calls
From writers
And storytellers
To one in training
Goodbye first draft
Goodbye comma abuse

Goodbye Julie, goodbye Jess
Goodbye Linda, Jen
J.J. and the rest
Goodbye newspaper
Goodbye desk
Goodbye to Nashville
You are the best
