lyrics

of all the books stacked behind your curtains of all the photographs piled ankle high pictures of the desert in bold live color a careened vessel and you burning fever bright you stood with parted lips and your arms folded I averted my gaze to your frozen laundry lines you wiped my brow and I cowered and quivered till you shut the door and turned off all the lights moving slowly as a hunter set your snares and sleep the night trace the footprints of another slow your breath take aim and fire of all the gowns left in your mother's attic of all the loose nails of all the men who wait outside the one with missing fingers was your favorite kept you in his wallet beside a draft card to remind of the strange light that lingers from the tool shed long after he’s come in and said goodnight of the weekend trips you took to sarasota and the houses you left hurriedly in the night do you recall the year Joseph Foster died? It was the same we raised up our wooden shell and dwelt down by the sea for a season made our beds and loved each other well I’d wake some mornings to your call from the garden Id stumble forth hunched in my sun pricked skin and find you out of breath beneath the roses Id lay me down exhale and sink right in moving slowly as a hunter set your snares and sleep the night trace the footprints of another slow your breath take aim and fire
