Castle DrearAnd so they say her blood drips down the walls
in the depths of the blackened castle drear
but if you listen close, you'll hear her call
and hear her footsteps echoes drawing near.

and starts to summon the end of all things.

to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon

let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
