help is coming down the river
though it’ll be a long night
i can feel it like frost on a window
while fire is burning inside
bodies shivering in cold pools of memory
fed by springs of moonlight

and the stars say ha ha ha ha ha

moon has risen then set for no reason
as though there was nothing to see
and now there isn’t so thoughts travel inward
to land upon what might not be
like calamity narrowly averted by faith and ingenuity

and so it goes
more or less

help is coming like birds in formation
with instinct a guide in the dark
and if it doesn’t it won’t
and like a lover the land will embrace and depart
and to the heavens we’ll go like the others went
without ever leaving a mark
