An Old Stone

lyrics

strike
shoulder to grass
there is a clap
spike of light
your head a halo
graphic pound
you disappear
there will be plenty of
second chances
in other nightmares
to find you
but i...

put my head down
wake up in four hours
i dreamt the whole thing
walking through
rows of appleblossoms
in white robes
and in darkness
outlines in glass
lit up form like neon signs
electric cadence
it was something holy
i couldn’t put my finger on

it took us
longer than we thought
to become strangers
i keep thinking
you’re just around the bend
just ahead

but i can’t get to you
roll back over
i’m not missing
anything else

meet at the restaurant
decide you’re not hungry
you look tired
this is an island or desert
there is no exit
glued to vinyl booths
with bottomless cups
no egress
only endless love
ending us

there you are
sitting on the steps
the steps of
the house we built
together
with
someone else
