and you;
i understand if you have to
with the sun painted gold on your
tiger back bone, i won't move

everything else is in it's place,
everything -
if you open your eyes up wide,
put your ear to

the lungs that breathe inside
but not in mine, no not in my holy waters,
my still still waters, but still

the sea will surge over
the sand, and i will take whatever
you can give me and sleep, i will say

i want the hand of god between
my ribs, i want a mechanical life,
i want no part in the winding evil

curling itself inside me, please
i want no part in settling down, i want
to see stars the colour of champagne, open

wrists like blind slats so i can see
the light, keep fresh inside
with cling film stretched across,

go on then do it, listen, i will let you,
i will take your lover's song, the blame
be storyteller to them all, sit in

their kitchens, pet their dogs
conceal the fact and smile
as life drags me down the aisle

to that bastard standing there
dressed all in black, the king of all
that dead man, rough lipped grin, who puts

a flower in my hair, pulls out a knife,
he says you made that bed and now you've got
to lie in it with me

(she said write something, right here right now)
