lyrics

I walk,
gliding and lunging
forcefully,
with the clip of my soled feet
and the dig of my nailed hands.

Its a stride
towards a freedom,
towards the lattice
in the memory of my dream: heart-shaped, iron-wrought
and the smaller into the centre
I fall with my gaze,
there are only hearts and curved down-turned apices
infinitesimally fractal.

And beyond, through this gridded hatch, it is stormy.
And I try, to swing out the latch,
open with a cry.
Stuck in my mouth,
behind my teeth
hard in my core,
the air hoarse, burning through my lungs, whirling...

We stand on a parapet, you and I...
I long to jump
us to a clearly refined space of safety or...
“understanding”,
said the spider on my knee,
from crouched dream to memory:
a symbol from beyond the storm.

If I had just one request from me to you:
“Don’t mistake her for Her ...or me.
The dreams of your memories
do not distinguish
the separate snowflakes
you once sent to me with love, as we turned and
danced and fell to the soft surface of the ground”
