The Song Can Take the Weight

Holly roads and stars crash down
Just a rumble but it rings out so long
Coloured candles melt into a candy town
A smoky ritual that still smells after it’s gone
Cold beginnings are your science and your art
Shaking down to a reducible state
And the song can take the weight

Collecting cities like chapters in unread books
Flipping through corners and intersections as you comb
Breeze through connections, give no secondary looks
Dog-ear some pages to revisit when you’re home
You only survive in the moments you surrender
Scrape the remainder from the bottom of the plate
And the song can take the weight
And I don’t see a change

Out in the sound of a sudden distance
Out in the distance under a memory, ringing out
Couldn’t have waited for notification (I didn’t cry)
Couldn’t have noticed my own constellation til I turned around

Running the numbers and printing the sheets to publish and pore
Shredding and stripping away to the bottom where no light can shine
Hovering under the empty container (only inside)
Couldn’t have felt so small and endangered
Never so close to time
