Oh southern belle of threaded hair
you spun a feeling in the heavy air
but I can't tell if words were good
for all the whispers coming through the wood


Your heart is well and free of grime
but still you're coughing corpses half the time
Those sickle cells come sharply down;
the only moment to be had is now


Shaking and folding the shapes of old clothing
too torn and tangled to wear
Lucid dreams of a nice view, nightmares of white seeds inside you
Swollen with every despair

You say you might be on the rise
(I see the laughter ringing in your eyes)
But by the time you change your mind
I might change mine



from In Rivers, In Floods, released February 18, 2017
