Dislocation, pushy persuasion
Ligament and bone
Ligament and bone
Crystal structures
Defects and blunders
Once turning all my mineral to stone

And so I reintroduce me to myself
"How do you do?"
I say, "I've heard such lovely things
About who you are and where you've been,
But be in me again, back in me again."

Will oh will oh wilderness, my wilderness
Dark and ambiguous
Will you tangle me in?
Lie oh lie oh lioness, my lioness
Sharp and ambivalent
Won't you lie on my skins?
Taxi-, taxidermist, taxidermist
Sopping-ripe intentionist
Oh I am intent on paying attention again
To my own cracked compass
Steady-handed

Semantic satiation
Where I can say your name
Over and over
'Til it means nothing
A deliberate extinction
Of everything I know
I was never meant to know
Know about you

But you are a fawn
With such secrets
And I have been fond
And keen on your meekness
I've bled dry for your arms
And longed to gnaw on your neck
Fawning over it

My love, oh my sweet love
Whom I am yet to unravel with
One night lie on my pulse
Tap the beat of my heart
Out on your clavicle
One day we shall be enraptured
Sweet enrapture!

What anticipation and how masterful
You can show me I am here in this world
Tall and truly true
Meeting myself
Before I meet you
