Elliptical: they stood at edge of the world (reprise)

Finding herself

At the edge

Of the world

Again

She reminds herself

About spheres

The eliptical axes

At the centre

Of everything

Her arms

Stretched to

The scale of

The universe

Spinning


They stood at the edge of the world

The trees eat the suns eat the trees: an other-worldly song

We bike

Sparkling roads

Under trees

Eating breeze

The trees eat

The suns eat the trees

Leaves

Flowers in seas

Afternoons

Meet the moons

The trees eat

The suns eat the trees

In evenings

Our bones

Laugh

With notes

All their own

The trees eat

The suns meet the trees
