Find yourself at ease

Push your feet in the ground like you were trees

And fill your broken mouth up with sound

Songwaves and arcs

When you were sixteen were you pining for cones

Mining for keys and burning apple cores, semaphore

Fortune and flies?

While you cry I’ll cut your hair

And thread your fingers through my own

Leaves and twigs and vines

Will cover your arms and legs and eyes

And place you quietly cradled

In the arms of the Earth



Through chaotic claps of thunder

You have found yourself sleeping

Open wide, push your wings through

This garden green skin



Darkness made of steam

Will crawl from your mouth into the sea

And take whatever got into you

Back to the deep

Find yourself at ease

Push your feet in the ground like you were trees

And let your heartbeat slow

As the tide ebbs and it flows
