And you said
It was like fire around the brim
Burning solid,
Burning thin the burning rim
Like stars burning holes right through the dark
You gave fire like saltwater into my eyes
You were an inch from the edge of this bed
I drive you back a sleepyhead, sleepyhead.

They couldn’t think of something to say the day you burst
With all their lions and all their might and all their thirst
They crowd your bedroom like some thoughts wearing thin
Against the walls, against your rules, against your skin
My beard grew down to the floor and out through the doors
Of your eyes, begonia skies like a sleepyhead, sleepyhead.



Passion Pit

    I do love this (forgot to thank you the other day for sending it my way – but I’ve been preoccupied as you know -HA *a PeeWee Herman laugh*) We need to catch up by phone. Call me if you have free time when you get home from work
