lyrics

we speak on the shore, tongues lapping
each impulse a leaf on the water careening then swallowed

you were evergreen then
and deciduous i, perfidious i
was born from

shuttered seasons
i shuddered as your fingers mapped these veins
innumerable now
count these veins

and i was red
and upturned
and i hoped you would die
before the springtime
i was red
and upturned
and i hoped you would die

you were skipping stones
toes in the water
when i opened you

and you turned red
and i turned grey
as arbiter wind
buried us in leaves
and there we lay
until the springtime
when melted snow
washed us away
