Weird How We Float

by Minor Moon



From dreams like a knife
I woke with a fever
shaken from rest
by impregnable haze
rise in the dark
for ice from the kitchen
ice from the kitchen

Well, my body’s no waste
but it’s surely no temple
more like a light
vessel unmoored
glass filling up
under the faucet
under the faucet

As I feel what our enemies know
It’s weird how we float,
how we float

When it’s torn away
they’ll all safely shudder
I think that they care
But they love what we lack
With each passing breath
The water is rising
The water is rising

As I feel what our enemies know
Yeah, it’s weird how we float
How we float ...
