about

Your woodgrain eyes
they sand me down
a return to what’s sound

When the hammer drops
the nails will fall
fold in with the walls

This wasted time
means everything
take hold of the yield it brings

Their hands were fists
their eyes were slits
Couldn’t stand the sight of it

Career enemy
extend your hand to me
Immune to wordless praise
Lose myself in all your ways

The seventh time
we called it off
dissolved into fading dark

Connected lines
Restored inside
Saved again with calm suffice

Career enemy
extend your hand to me
Immune to wordless praise
Lose myself in all your ways

Career enemy
extend your hand to me
Immune to wordless praise
Lose myself in all your ways

Career enemy
give your hand to me
With folly painted lights
My affections magnified
