If you could learn to breathe
Would you waste it all on me
Would you keep it to your selfish shellfish being
Once we learn to read
Will you read me off to sleep
Transcripts and poetry to soften up my dreams

Let's rowboat around the house
When they threaten the hulls to flood us out
We'll swim out of our clothes
And love through our bones

We'll think it up
Outgrow our teenage skin
Will you flood me with a drink
Or just invite me in
So size me up with bronze
Just to get me into bed
And sort through books of names
To map our cats and kids
And once our lashes grey
And I'll forget your name
Just hold my fragile bones
And love me just the same

Let's rowboat around the house
When they threaten the hulls to flood us out
We'll swim out of our clothes
And love through our mouths
Let's rowboat around the house
When they thread through the keyholes to flood us out
Just breathe through curtained holes
And love through your mouth
