Bury the Tongue

A Slow Wait,
but are you there counting time
With leaves falling through the darkness 
or the limbs collected 
to make part of mast to pull all the hours over old trodden steps
A regression to bind, 
a shadow sways to the sound with
time in step
you pull the sails
and paddle this torrent of mind
over mute forms
Put all your strength
and make for a distant outline,
not waiting for it's sounding anyways

hollow a fortune lost
hollow a mission done
this is all
hollow a fortune lost
hollow a mission done
hollow the center to the edge 
spill it sideways and out 

none are the same one is enough
none are the same when drawing circles 'round two hearts
none are the same one is enough

whispering will follow you out

follow the sea into its river
and it will all be undone
drown your language and carry the untold to a different place
