Track Name: ghost of rain
through the ghost of rain
I thought I heard your fingers
tapping on my tent

are your hands closed to wind
or are they
open holding clay

evening sun coming down
melting like a coin
on top of the tree line

my heart like that sun
cooling under moonlight
steam rising where it was

my hands have lost all their feeling
but my feet still go up the hill
when you fucked up worse
than you ever have before
how do you wake up in the morning and sit still?
Track Name: dreaming angles
the falling rain no longer
puts my face in your head
and I no longer can put your dreams into my songs

one night you were sleeping
and in your sleep you said
“something’s wrong here, something’s wrong”

I spend all my time thinking
of how to build
something out of something that had been

sleeping with a hammer
on wooden window sills
dreaming angles and support beams in our skin

my hands have lost all their feeling
but my feet still go up the hill
when you fucked up worse
than you ever have before
how do you wake up in the morning and sit still?
Track Name: honey song
there’s no honey in my hands
sweet enough to hold
it just falls away like time

your body on my body
feels like a lightning bolt
running through my head
and down into my spine
Track Name: book song
all the books that I should have read
lying like bloody leaves
all across my bed

going over it in my head
all the worlds I left closed
but yours closed instead
Track Name: i could be an ocean
when it breaks
let me hide my face
in this rage

feet apart
but a mountain standing here
in this space

they said
I feel just like a bear
in this state

lashing out
but the gift in this
child of grief, never raised

if I could turn
the source back on in me
in this desert plain

I could be
an ocean so big
I could drown everything
