grave song

                                              a bird sings in the forest
                                              its song is invisible

                                              i hear you daughter
                                              your words are invisible
                                              the echo of your words is invisible
                                              the wind taking your words away is invisible

                                              you found my footsteps
                                              followed my invisible feet
                                              to my old man’s bones

                                              here among the trees
                                              soon i too will be invisible

                                              i see your red smile
                                              questions scar your face

                                              circle me
                                              push your feet in earth
                                              leave me your dance
                                              i will remember it

                                              take my dreams
                                              they are invisible
                                              hide them
