Your black heart survived the fall,
then moved like an unnatural thing.
A bleak mist that slid and crawled,
a shadow behind everything.

When the window's a door, taken by the memory,
of creepers and vines; a scrambled moon, in the night like breath,
naked, and growing roots down into the needle's pines.

Don't just sit there and neigh, it's a new day,
in the rows, see the garden it grows?
Don't worry about the Sun in the gloom,
it's a knight for when light is doom.

The floor is unswept, strewn with the memories of photographs and toys;
in the greenish noon, the calm noise of a world without girls or boys

Don't fray it away, it's a new day;
in the rows, see the garden, it grows!
Don't worry about the hand of gloom,
bare your thorns, for when might is doom.

Don't waste your breath.
