about

A song for Winters, CA.

lyrics

phonology, doublespeak,
intangible and seething
heat waves wash us cleaner than bleach
more tired than wheels

streams not rivers
the currents race, the course is run
interminably forgiven
not forsaken, not forevermore

hills not mountains
but old folks travel heavy
to spend the night inside a home
to spend a life transparent on your own

the roads will tread, and glaciers fret
the avalanche will tremble in vain
the paths diverge, it's obvious
that you can always just turn away

open hands and more hands
maneuver in deficiency
they stretch until they feel
reflex remade real, and reeling

cracked not shattered
retreating coastlines suffocate
and tides too low for testing
a head too light to rest today

wine not water
amplified in sunlight
heat waves wash us cleaner than bleach
more tired than wheels
