lyrics

Curl into the ground
become a seed
white and waxy
smooth as satin
eyes milk shut

You had a root
sent a filament into the silence
reached out for something
older than writing

The answer is dirt and nitrogen
vole bones, mica, calbovista
something soft to settle flesh from bone
to rub your vertebrae to round white stones

Curl into the ground
and fall apart with ease
turn into something
new and shooting up leaves

The answer is russet brown and rich
water, lichen, ancient violets
tastes of green make bright a quiet home
light and shadow furl and then unroll

Easier than breathing
than ever winning anything
shinier than bleeding
than crashing under silver waves

The answer is nowhere you've ever been
heightened, gliding,
bubbles rising
the answer is nowhere that you know
until it is your fingers and your toes

Curl into the ground
and drink the aching silence of the trees
whisper a question
dream, dream, dream
