i bring shallow lakes to you-

dip your feet in frozen graves and feed the crows,
as they sing for your crumbling pieces 

to the moon // and back,

he comes with handfuls of snow 
as we, glittering in our accidental harmony
swing like the swans that danced in january-

for now, we dip our feet in the melting cold
for now, sing the screeching crows
for now, we feed the sky our emptiness 
for now, the grey has fallen sick
for now, we wait in aching

as the open seas, open our hearts 
and let us drown once again

till then, i can only scream // ask you 
to bring me the sea.
