lyrics

We ply in maps. We are certain that the world fits on a page, in a poem, and believe that what we see doesn’t slip into the discontinuities we use to lead our children through this quaint diorama.

We are real people living in our imagination at simile speed, failing to keep up with a life led beyond a metaphor’s needs that sheds and reissues all that continues without seams. The dispersal of seeds.

We are all sages and saints waiting to happen.
We are real people living in our imagination.

And it is more beautiful than can be expected. But we scratch and sniff at our books in attempts for the actual scent. Lord, we try to fade into the sky. But we come home alone. We come home small. Cuz no belief has any meat at all.
