Found a moth sleeping in
The folds of your dress.
Burnt out because he
Turned out such a mess.
He’d caught sight of a light
That called his name.
Caught her eyes, and then he
Cauterized from the flame.

Say my dear,
Is this familiar?
And I apologize,
But I must avert my eyes.

Say my dear,
Is this familiar?
And I apologize,
But I must avert my eyes
From the light, from the light.
Say goodnight.

    General CommentIt's like a series of snapshots that are laid in a mess on a table. You don't know which one goes first or last or what belongs in between. It's beautiful and it's a catastrophe and yet it all fits together so perfectly.
