OLDER, TOO I said it smells like wind in the breeze and I've been spending my time climbing trees so all these consultations in the matter have been taking care of business at hand. I got no voice or subject, no conversation; the reconciliation is over. You'll be older, too. You'll be covered when you're through. Every time you pass by, it feels like a jigsaw in front of my eye. We're circling, circling, circling, deeper into blue. All these interrogations like congregations, constellations making faces at me. I got no say in the matter now. You'll be older, too. You'll be covered when you're through. Icannotspeakinsilence.Icannotspeakinriddles.Igotnounderstandingofthetruthnowwhen you'respeaking.Igotnoone'sattention.Igotnocandidlullaby.Can'tyouseeI'mtryingtobewith you? You'll be older, too. You'll be covered when you're through. And you'll write words that shout like lions inside of you. And you'll fall like the prettiest leaf under this new moon
