Approximately Infinite by Yoko Ono
Published in Asahi Graphic magazine in 1974. Translated from Japanese.

In this approximately infinite universe
I know a girl who's in constant hell
No love or pill could keep her cool
Cause there's a thousand holes in her heart

And the wind of the past
Blows through her heart
Reminding her of the people she killed
Wind of now
Blows off her cool
Telling her there's something she's missed

You know the town of Sapporo, she says
Where men talk rough and never sing
Two bottles of loneliness
Patching the holes in her dream

In this approximately infinite universe
I know a girl who's raising constant hell
No love or bottle could fix her good
Cause there's a thousand holes in her head

And the wind of the future
Blows through her head
Saying there's no point of return
The wind of the universe
Blows off her soul
Telling her there's nowhere to go

I wanna sleep wanna sleep, she says
And take her fix to bed
Two bottles of loneliness
Patching her holes in her dream

July 1974 in NYC, Yoko Ono
