Above I walk, with fruits of the season
From the cliffs I spy the island from the other side
My right arm shields from the creatures I’m teasing
Keep the beasts at bay, life over life

The four birds, the poor birds, swoop and dive
A morsel makes for a quiet night

And all this time, the beach is receding
As the liquid snakes the vessel to a lighter line
Upon the deck, the mountain is heaving
Dish of the day, life over life

Then one fish, a young fish, leaps and dives
His gills agasp for air inside

Behind my spine, the figures are turning
Their heads to prey on wildflower finds
Between each page, keepsakes for learning
We take what we need, life over life

As your love and our love bends and breaks
We feed the words that bare our shapes
As your love and more love breaks, it bends
It peels away, but seldom ends.
