Restless Wind

The tectonic,
spinning planet
pushed mountains past the treeline
black murder of a quiet cold
in the basement of your valley home
Wait I'll lean against a quiet breeze
let loose prayers against a tragedy
so restless winds can carry them home

Generous mother
grateful father
what stories have been passed to me?
Wide awake following false trails
the places, so far from home
Hey I'll stand up in a quiet breeze
let loose prayers against a tragedy
so restless winds will carry them home

You get up and out of bed
Follow grown-up midnight voices
Explosion of laughter somewhere
Like releasing a long-held valve
Your tiny footsteps stop short
As you peak around the corner
They call to you by your wrong name
The air goes out your lungs, face red, my god.
Oh my god, my god, my god.

Released Jan 2016.
