the veldt

lyrics

stood by the window
open in winter
your breath like eye drops as
we danced the fridge loose

shapely as shadows
words fall from my teeth
our friends are near us but
grow flat and prideful

jar full of cinders
empty on the sill
new patch of light on the
swept kitchen tile

it seems more healthy
not to throw parties
it seems more healthy to
get out of the house

afternoon is open wide
horizontal in the sunlight
plans are formed and ignored to make breakfast

in the whirr of weekend sleep
i can dream of being younger
to forget is a state of sharp focus
a bright white light in the bathroom

i'm a seed fell from a tree
grown to build a great big sail
i descend just the way i'd imagined

patient as a whirligig
over not above the ground
traded choice in exchange for perspective
and took the risk of beholding
