Straightforward chords
Tunes that feel old
Unfinished rhymes
Lines that feel holy

The last of my voice
The crack of the fire
An unlikely choice
And honest desire

A chorus of muted hues,
The sound I make loving you

Tail-eating snake
Dog chasing tail
Calm as a lake
Big as a whale

Single-spaced type
Open-faced rye
Taller than hype
Slanted like lies

A tangle of living roots,
The shape that I make loving you

But not a wave or a quake
Could swallow or shake
The sense that it makes, loving you
