about

A song for decommissioned nuclear reactors and miniature tree sculptures.

lyrics

in seemly solitude and unkept gratitude
the oak limbs stretch tentative at first
they knarl and they tangle, shapely curves
the slyest of grins, they hunt where it hurts

unwound, with wiry boughs that shine
and sever

the heat bakes miserly and can't it disguise
those branches withered weeping though still weathering
cry for shade and singe the feathers clean
make a plan to stick together, or at least something

unwound, seasons smoking carefully,
too much time to spare

motherless and wired shut, shut up
retreat, release and spiral
outward from a comfort creature
all things equal, i will carry you

away from stolen beaches where the towers rise and reach
over curvature i can't comprehend
mutually assured to reach the end
and it gets real quiet on the way back in

unwound, and unhinged shifting soundlessly
ever, ever stalling

but i couldn't carry a thing at all
and that omission made me crawl
oh what a mission i have set myself upon
you reach out and i withdraw, just take the fall

when seams are bare of thread, i stitch them with a care
i just need a place to keep my insides there
the oaks stretch ever upwards unaware
the rain don't favor those who got the strength to spare

unwound, with wiry boughs that shine
and sever
