you’re the only secondary salmon nation under the sun
on the edge of all creation
handsome homestead without a gun
sun sets I have no memory
of the places we’ve sung
stacking stones with our enemies
they call us to the cellar one by one

you’re the only secondary salmon nation under the sun
on the edge of fields of granite
seas of grasses
a band undone
and in the flash of the firelight wrapped in blankets we made
when the last lonely embers died they put us all to bed and stole away

you’re alight
you’re alight
our tongues were never tied
the church keys and the ditch weed kept it sanctified
you’re alight
and when you took off for that razor town, well, something in me died

cupping clouds of fireflies
built a home for fireflies
found a name for fireflies
