lyrics

I entered slowly without sound
The territory guarded by hounds

Without a morsel I tried to bear
A shelter tossed in open air

That hefty ranger tends entwined
My solitude he grants in kind

I lie awake, no comfort found
Like sprites my thoughts did dance around

I hear your voice through pines and the simmer of black flies
I couldn’t have waited for you love,
The fruits only fade with

Time, the measure that grows and extends my limbs
To pluck strings and sing notes
It’s stopgap, but the closer I’ve felt

The one I left behind
She’s a full moon set so fine
I’m collapsed here on the earth
Just passing time

The forest floor, she lets me go
Though her cradle leaves wanting more
Than a frame for memories
And distant shores

Far away the buildings rise
My attachment to does underlie

The one she lives among the clouds
Where I’ve made myself so disallowed

The city it sleeps and wanders the paths I’ve taken
Truly, though through the
Expansion, feeds my loneliness
A newly formed horizon, a crystalline construction
