Track Name: Zesty Mordant
That I might die in any light
That these letters curl with age
That water escapes every inch
That you freeze in photograph
That nothing was enough
That our mouths were shaped by love
That every branch laughed and bowed
That every branch laughed and bowed

That I might die in any light
That these letters curl with age
That water escapes every inch
That you freeze in photograph
Track Name: Nevergreen
White and bathed
in soft-focus
Appealing and
bearing no hope

I drip from fingers
kept under my knees
And fade with practiced
bittersweet

Drawn on the incline
of our breaths
The coaxing of your
careful lens

Pale amidst the distance
in your smile
The dappled glass
and passing tiles

The dappled glass
and passing tiles
