MOON UNDER WATER it’s hard to remember, it’s hard to remember, it’s hard to remember right. it’s like chasing moonlight with your eyes shut on a bike ride and your arms stretched away from your side touching the summer all the ones you are from or the ones you have yet to find standing alone in the place that you know and waiting for it to arrive. oh, the touch of skin, send my heart a-fluttering the boom of the ice of the moon attempting to return to the night, ya-hey. oh, the touch of skin, send my heart a-fluttering Saw the moon under water and I saw a hole in the ice. for once we reversed it completely immersed in mistaking the stars for house lights closing the car door and running on water and keeping the moon in our sight.

I’m leaving for the mountains I heard they were lonely I’m not scared of the darkness I have darkness in me I heard there was somewhere far away and free do you think we could get there? when the moon and the stars enter into yonders’ green.

Silky 03:22
SILKY you’re from the sea. I know that it’s lovely there. I have also known bare breast against wave crest and the glow of buyouancy when the wild water holds holds holds this world does not let go so easily you’re a human being. Wingless and full of dreams lighting little lanterns in the hollow caverns of the night and inside of me where secret things are shown where the wild wind blows blows blows on its five-pointed-star-crossed-roads. Well, here we are again: at this long door. long door this is a long door this life is a long door long door this life is a long door long door long door long door long door long door long door a rest in a rest between heartbeats snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug this is a wink from the suns eye we have a moment to learn how we touch five pointed star-crossed roads

Trails 00:35
All we have are the paths that came before us the trails of deer, subtle and clear when the world was forest. they are now highways, an impassable maze slash and burn, slash and burn, slash and burn
10.
stand in the clover in a blanket of snow heard the wind come and held the note the field parts its hair with a bristling brush of ice the field casts out its stones like they were dice instead of a stone wall I’m building a throne of saplings and pinecones of bitters and bones pools of streetlight pools of sweat pools of blankets, painted axe head. smoke and hair and the long stare backward. smoke and hair and the long stair backward. smoke and hair and the long stare backward. Oh, to drink from the water, oh! Oh! To drink one's fill! Oh! The pools are filling up! Oh! Meet me there at the well!
