There’s a quiet bereavement of fireflies
that always fades at summer’s end
with a ritual burning of leaves.
And there among that ash smoke
of loss, blackbirds will gather
along the high lines. They’ll
lift and fall, a mourner’s veil,
while dusk softly closes a lid
over the darkening Delta.

It also has, of course, one of the great fake-dead cool girl figures of the era, not the greatest (even as an everclear superfan I recognized the honor goes to Maria), but a great one. The girl on the whole record, I mean.
