Track Name: Goodness Pt. 1
When the sun rested on olive shoulders

and the wind kissed the back of your neck,

I would lay and absorb in the silence,

in your language I haven’t learned yet.

In the tune of the national anthem

sing the words while the corrugate bursts,

while our burning desires crackling.

We exist in the unified verse.

When your eyes became focused on absence,

how the shadows were cast on the plane

under moonlight of middle November.

I was shifting to stay in the frame.

I would eat from the tops of your branches

spit it out, break a bough and descend.

I would dream of the ways we get cradled

while this lullaby rings in my head.

When this began

this was a thing 

that we could both share.

A bit of shade

the goodness fades 

and we begin there.
