Baby, I dreamt you were a shark
Maybe I dreamt I was a killer
Tank of water clear and dark
Ocean highway long and yellow

And if you die before I wake
I hope it's in your favorite sweater
And if this came for true life's sake
It is the hook through me, the minnow

The ballerinas of the rain
Break on your skin like liberation
And in my dark and chuckling brain
You hang like a constellation

I've never seen a greener eye
Held upon the starry gallows
Early moon and evening time
Have left you red and left me hollow

Your mother wore a cape of furs
Your mother hides beneath your hairdo
Your mother wore some shining shoes
I know she's begging me to spare you

But the whitest waves are a waving field
The way they dance out on the ocean
But sunlight cannot pierce that shield
Plunge to my grief and my confession
