lyrics

it’s fey down there
where the dirt slumps in mid-speech
shoulders held as if to half ward off
the oak and the beech
where in the valley crease
the water draws the mountains steadily downwards
and on curls the path
past where Elly turned her car
past where the hillside hides scars
of a blast that the earth shrugged off
where I catch
glimpses of Lil
forests of glass
empires of spider’s silk
against the dappled milk
of an afternoon that dawned itself
into the dusk

and the engine chokes
but it does what it must
it coughs and croaks its way
through the gravel and the dust
and I give no quarter to the ache inside
the dogs will lick it clean when I arrive

my heart the book you write
the song you sing
the jolt that lifts that sunken ship
on the cusp of homecoming
