A huge smooth claw
Hangs in the sky
The hook that holds the shawl
And curtains off the light
Something scratching on my window pane
Its strange to feel the night so alive again

There you were
Coming down the stairs
Your skin so pale
And your dark hair
Dust had settled
On the furniture and floor
Letters piled up
In the drawer

There birds
In the summertime
With plumes of all the hues
That could stain
The side of the road
Out in the rain
One stood alone
With all its colors drained

Black flamingos
Outside your tomb
When I come there
To liberate you
You carry a child
In your arms
I carry a knife
For your heart
