falling in low lit red gray ashes

"How long has it been", he thought out
[Hands down. Echoes swell out.]
loud. Like someone was listening now.
[Move over the surface. Body of water.]
Putting it down: "a little lighter everyday"
[He is breaking waves, they draw]
"we laugh but we cant remember why",
[on him - under the water - ]
"phoning it in", "You wont believe what
[until he's gone.]
you can't forget"

This is not written down.
[Drying, ice on our skin. Warm]
This is out loud. Putting our words to
[along our hair. The orange glow]
song, our day to days, and our hearts
[behind the back of our eyelids.]
apart. He sees an ant. crawling up
[The water has never been colder than]
the window pane. It stops an inch above the
[it is this year.]
rooftops. Then it had wings. Then it flew. Far & away.

(I can hear you now
you were in the woods)
