[INTERMISSION XIV] Moonlighting WOE.BEGONE

    • Science Fiction

Season 8 of WOE.BEGONE begins next week.
LYRICS:
This is my first night
moonlighting as a walking stick
so forgive me if I start to break
in the moments you are frail
I will try my best to be
more than just a mirror
Trying as I might
having other goals
splitting up my time
apologies if I
wasn’t meant to bear
weight as great as this
for very long
I was not enough
to stop our bulky baskets
from falling in the river
I was not enough
to stop out lazy futures
from ticking away
inside our heads
modicum of salt
spread on the ground
thought that you would flinch
but you didn’t
terror in the eyes
terra firma now
I think that I’m why
the plants aren’t growing
and I wasn’t holding onto hope for nothing
but I wasn’t holding on with both my hands
because I needed one to steady up my body
battled-hardened for a battle I won’t win
until I sink into the permafrost again
I was not enough
to salvage every vessel
with rations meant to fill us up
I was not enough
to demand a permanent end
to the breeze that threw us off
