Seconds to be your lover
decades to be your friend
I made a poem of her
Wind over sand

I didn't write this ending
I simply understand
Entropy's never-ending
The sea chews the land

If this is liberation
I can't be free

My life in just one moment of pure release

Ampersand, ampersand and endlessly shifting speech
everything poisonous is locked in our reach

If this is liberation
I can't be free

Bonfire leer
Fire up an effigy
I tremble nearer
I love you
I love you still
A castle
a man of silt
