I know what I want
Should I first ask to depose the light?
Let it chase me round and round
Me — play hard to get?
But at this point in human history
For what purpose?
With time unubiquitous
If not now, when?
With stars and firmament acting finite
To what end?
Oh, woe is this world
And all it has committed
Against the oh-so other-worldly
Tell it now, what shall I tell it
To the pure child’s untarnished mind
To my lover’s knowing heart
You must’ve anguished
The day I saw your magic
I saw you’re magic
out the blue
with no fear
time will prove
The cut has come on strong as I am strong
The red flows more fast than I am fast
The inhale cannot pace with the exhale
The color fades too far into the pale
The heart don’t yet know what it ought know
You look and you learn
You seek and you see
But this shirt I slept in
This shirt that I wept in
Is the shirt where I learned to see me
It’s the shirt that I’ll dance in
It’s the shirt that I’ll love in
And tho’ it’s still stained
With milk and not meat
It will not be made a mockery
