i'm reading fortunes while everyone still sleeps,
those fragile forms leaning out over the street,
the broad leaves still heavy with dew,
there are these fragments i've yet to arrange for you.
so i walk downtown on my day off
just trying to notice where my breath joins the fog.
and on my shoulders i'd carry our girl,
we'd move so large against our narrowing world.
and i'd like to hold that truth for awhile.
let the future bloom as in the eyes of a child.
we'll try to pretend we understand our fates,
and go on gathering all we love in one place.
but i will be just a vessel today,
if there are still these spirits that will work for their pay.
and we'll let the wisdom of the age start to swirl
and move so large against our narrowing world.
