We snuck into her office late at night,
clasping sweaty hands, put out the light,
then felt around in darkness for
the floor.

I only lost my mind a year ago.
Sometimes I think it goes to show
the way you cut your dress was never meant
for me.

Have you a hat you stole from grandma's room?
Antiques are worthless heirlooms.
I couldn't take it, so I turned around
again.

give mine touch tongue hate you
I see love smell high heart hear
song sing taste no sky take star they might snow

give mine touch tongue hate you
I see love smell high hear heart song
sing taste no sky take star they might snow

give mine touch tongue hate you
I see love smell high hear heart song
sing taste no sky take star they might snow

Mouths in silence end in scraping chairs,
sturdy leaving empty spaces where the ghosts of
others would be sure to take
their place.

We thought we saw them in the candlelight,
their shifting figures bluish-white,
but when the lights went out, they'd left without
a trace.

Then six months later, when the fields were soft,
we saw them lined up by the artist's loft
where Kate and Matty smoked their first pot
cigarettes.

give mine touch tongue hate you
I love see smell high hear heart song
sing taste no sky take star they might snow

give mine touch tongue hate you
I love see smell high hear heart song
sing taste no sky take star they might snow

We snuck into her office late at night,
clasping sweaty hands, put out the light,
then felt around in sweaty darkness for
the floor.

I only lost my mind a year ago.
Sometimes I think it goes to show
the way you cut your dress was never meant
for me.

Have you a hat you stole from grandma's room?
Antiques are worthless heirlooms.
I couldn't take it, so I turned around
again.
