lyrics

Just like the silt that rises up from the bed
and turns in water flowers (forming rivulets),
the shell of a beetle trapped inside her tiny hand
rose up to the surface like a ghost in a thrall where,
to your horror, you collapsed against the earth
where the horizon told the difference
between the strong and the bored.

She'd followed it to the water while your back was towards the door;
held open for the breeze that enters softly off the shore
at that time of day (when nothings more pressing then the heat
and the wandering of an insect beneath dirty little feet).
And years later, when the neighbours finally ask, you'll say
"All we have is all we've ever wanted back,

and oh, love!
All of us die young."
