lyrics

A WELCOMING OF OWLS

You will seem unique and lovable I will
tell you so the next moment
I will go
back on what I said these long
hours with arms raised
to your chandelier
dusting its crystals
The moon now
cradling a star it will have been
a welcoming of owls
one last night siphoned from
endless day

I have dreamed a field unalterable you will
fain plow and sow the next morning
I will grow
rich with dirt and dread these
long hours with arms raised
toward the coming year all rust in the cistern
The moon now
cradling a star it will have been
a welcoming of owls
one last night sweetens
the last old day

Loaded down with ore and boredom
the waves beyond
the window break the oarsmen
