lyrics

Flux
Softly pulling in
Eyes
My eyes are staying shut
Her hands
Her hands will multiply
Old leaves
Our forest won’t grow back

I don’t need forgiveness
for keeping my eyes shut
I don’t need to feel better for
burning the leaves away
I don’t need a lover
to tell me it’s okay
Hiding like a creature
I can bury my mind here.

Dust
The wood is petrified
Creatures
Quiet but alive
The cold
of the afterlight
Your breathing
Your breathing isn’t right.

We could carry over
skin and dusty bone
Permanence has always
been the problem with stone
Roots ripping up
as if science were art
as if hands touching tender
get hard to remember

I don’t need forgiveness
for keeping my eyes shut
I don’t need to feel better for
burning the leaves away
I don’t need a lover
to tell me it’s okay
Hiding like a creature I can bury my mind here.
