There’s only room
On this old lake
For two birds
Translucent paper plate
Coffee in the pot
Etched in black dirt
Gloves made of handholds
White-feathered birds
Homing pigeons on warplanes
Extremely well-to-do
You were too young to fly
Fastened to the railing

Raised in centimeters
Knitted in a factory
60s houses fallen softly
A cool guy in shades

Ladder scaffolded
Sugar-tired feeling
Southbank bunkers
Blisters from the backpack
Pearls in Iceland
Endlessly beaten down grass
What do we make here?
Dyed with a chemical

Walk through the city
All through the night


from Thru The Nite, released July 24, 2017
