1.
Silver Bay 04:44
far out along the bay the water wrinkles its nose shrugs its shoulders turn into the wind wave back just around the corner just when you think that there isn't anything there you learn what to look for
2.
sometimes the water is high when I go down in the white fog morning when a hundred spiderwebs are glowing all of the branches, dead in the shadows deer are sleeping there dear, you're sleeping there oh how I saw you up in the golden sunlight mourning dove sang sweetly purple cloud went into the river
3.
well you missed the boat that day you were comin' home I miss you today like the wave that missed the shore I missed the train today I was comin' home I was gonna ride those rails until I saw your face but my woman how she lies through stone cold eyes and the hand that paints the trees how swift the stroke now, swift the stroke how swift the stroke now, the hand that paints the trees she whispers her song to me she whispers to the wind and I wish my whispers were the same but they will never be you can't hear me when I speak so I'll come into the dream and you'll hear me when you sleep but my woman how she lies...
4.
in the quartz morning fragments of the night like trailing lace in the cracked river something coming out with mayfly wings in the quartz morning inside the sunlight you gather me into you...
5.
Waiting Sky 03:09
when she is shy she whispers when she is lonely goes away her feet have worn a path into the leaving day when she is tall she's angry when she is stubborn sits up straight she's trying hard to leave before it gets too late when she is here she's quiet when she comes in she says goodbye no one will see her climb into the waiting sky
6.
The Hands 03:41
hands, turning touch them let them become like water soothing the king has the hands of a healer
7.
Connecticut 03:49
with soft wings they sit in windowpanes and on downy wallpaper of a thousand patterns one chooses white forgets its birch wings with long legs limitless darkness no gravity except the core of light back in drawer corners against the glass there is no dream or waking just egg and web dust and pollen leg and wing heat and blood
