"Every Tense" as written by and Laura Anne Stevenson....
It's too bright out,
The heat dries my eyes out,
And we, we turn over,
We turn over like a wheel.

No one stays here besides
Devils and rockscalers, and they,
They know better, they are gonna disappear
But we'll be here.
We will be here.

Under the rough that grows itself outward
Toward the four corners of the earth not downward.
There is no water under the gravel, there are no well-throated travelers.
And we turn over, we turn over like a wheel.

Under the traps of scavengers, bat your eyes and you are wrapped up in them.
Kicking of limbs and wriggling endlessly won't set you free
You are a tumbleweed, a jumble of feeble parts,
Can you even see in the dark?
You're carrying all that you own,
Carrying all that you own on and on and
We turn over, we turn over like a wheel.

We turn over, we turn over like a wheel.
