My hands a telling sign of age
The scent of sage distracts me bite your lip
Wait for me grave

I always see horizons
Just as the sun is fading, string of ridges hope
About face this boat

My gut’s a mix of buttered beans
and butterflies and queasy fleas
Feasting leaches draining me
of sleep and peace and please

Tell me what is on your floor
The cutting room the secret door
What did you file away before
You left for other islands

You cannot exit if you tried
The stunting blue light bleeds collective eyes
Arm hairs entwine

Not without weight, chest pressed and whispers
Not without ample time to stew
You drew a faint outline there

Tell me what…

Whisper what is on your mind
The decent thoughts we’re told to hide
The ones that made you come alive
That you’ll mix with your ashes

And I’ve got a string caught up in your weave
I’m forgetting all of my reasons for being
Yeah I’ve got a string caught up in your weave…da.da.dumb.da.dumb.da.dumb

When do you weigh the pros and cons
What one thing makes you barrel on and on
You’re gone before you know it

My throats gone raw from saying things
Aloud that I wouldn’t waste my dreams on
Soap scrub fear blood hope

Whisper what…
My gut’s a mix….
And I’ve got a string….
