Night Song Dance

Night Song Dance

The descending seabirds are our eyes
And we see glimpses of each other’s hearts
As wonderful blessings in passing currents

Piece together my great mystery
Wrapped in shadows upon shadows
And please hold my story
As my hands are skeleton claws now

Know me in my secret spaces
Behind the calcified layers of my wild heart
And I will make an alter
To honor your unknowable ghosts

Let’s hold onto each other through the long night
On a deck that might just keep us
And pray this obsidian life never ends
Because there has never been
Nor will there ever be a tomorrow
That we can truly feel in these quaking bones

So let’s rattle our souls
And dance from the night song that we have only begun
And let it play as loud as it will until it does not
