Last night I lead through the river bank
I visited my family of trees
Weightless sounds of autumn and
Blue and blue, and green

Some of us
are not
like you

We carry black bits of the void in our hearts
Our hearts beating backwards from no-one knows when
The sky calls us back home with the gravity of stars
(Remember, and pretend)

hearts like anchors
hearts like wings
the bottom of the ocean pulls
the highest ice clouds sing

I've carried black bits of the void in my heart
Since I don't-remember-when
I've tried to fold time since before I was born
But it as too late, even then

Pushing worlds between teeth
Pulling words in our sleep
Signifying everything
and nothing between dreams

I've carried phrases for weeks
But it's the phrases that carry me
Through days and nights of noise, and noise,
Like waves under my feet

There are memories where only melodies take us
Melodies we can only recall in our sleep
There's a certain way light can creep in and then wake us
And corrupt the truths we'd just earlier seen

Don't forget to remember,
Remember to sometimes forget...
How to travel back in time?
Unfold letters, and pretend
