I called, but you didn’t come
I called, but you didn’t come

So tonight I will take all my dinner alone, the way she planned
if only to keep it warm and satisfied like the delight in the fulgurite sand

Come, come, come
Come and be home
Calling in the fields tonight and breathing in what will be written on
So set, settle and set,
white teeth and bone
because if it’s your heel I’ll rise and be counted among your sons

But I called
you didn’t come
I called
but you didn’t come
So tonight, I will break up this old chifferobe, the way she planned
to sell it off piece by piece, to the first pair of out-stretched hands

So walk, walk, walk
Walk yourself on
There’s no more light to make the way seem different from the storm stone
Stay, for the surplus and wait,
it wasn’t the old, old, old
for once what was done to the Ash, between the fire and the scraping with bone

I called, you didn’t come
I called, but you didn’t come
