lyrics

it is my preference
like the river wearing at the shore
it is incongruous to me, to be made of matter

i forget what sound is
language was granted but only once
i look and look and look
touch i cannot abide
smell is the fairest memory pull

i have little to say for or about myself
i am here and not here, what more?

i am still thinking of another today
my thoughts are not my own, i am glad to be possessed
in a desire that has no end
for the end has already come
some cruel winter ago
like that frost along the window frame
a landscape inscrutable

today my friend tells me i am immortal
i could indeed live forever in this
grief of mine it is habitable
and like the snow-laden corners
of the corn-fields given over
stretches through a whole mind of direction
to "make do" in each or every encounter
red berry, naked branches, winter root
every iteration of that winter light in her pale hour

in that impossibility, here i am
anywhere the earth is, trodden or untrodden
a love to carry one anywhere, north along the road
sanctified in a few gestures to the forgotten mountains
back into the self unspoken
