There were things you were never supposed to understand
Reasons beyond simple compilations, combinations
The songs written years ago that you hum before you
drift to sleep—songs you’ve never actually heard before
rough drafts that fade you in and out of the picture
with every soul like a flickering light
you stand, feeling your way into this fantastic abyss,
your feet finding the curving rises and falls and
shifting to dance steps laid out for you a very long time ago
By being, you are enough to turn the key.
