lyrics

shedding sparks I've been writing poems with matches in the dark an epilogue to an empty book in smoke signals that vanish when you turn to look secret words that you whispered through cupped hands into the earth spread like frost and crystalized but I can't read the writing that they left behind we don't need to fill silent spaces take the pauses and excavate them until they crack along their seams and all of our useless and troubled words go slipping in between when you said mourning dove isn't spelled like the time of day ever since the birds outside never have sounded quite the same the pilot light that burns beneath the ground and keeps the leaves on trees flickers now at the slightest breeze but still I take the bus to work and walk home in my sleep we don't need to fill silent spaces take the pauses and excavate them until they crack along their seams and all of our useless and troubled words go slipping in between
