Incantation Bones

Red, sing me moonskin.

Tell me every sound.

Deep cave tales.

 

For the day like searchlight

empties the world.

For my love to stay.

 

Grade me to black,

my body transparent,

let stars grab my hair.

 

My tongue make ocean beat,

my words find sailtrees,

my love to stay.

 

I will be crow,

inside a window.

I will learn to sing.
