I Am A Silver Bloodstream Ribbon

1.
she was raised by snails in flooded gardens slowly moving and barely floating in sunshine and rain turns to salt and mix with the water i never saw her as death dream in the dry season the future known and feared it's seen as all the corpse lands swollen with flies and dead birds all the bone dust she breathes setting slowly i knew her as the death girl it was the thing that was the thing with the voice that opened up the ground and healed minds and stopped the clocks it repeats and she follows and we stop i never knew them at all

a gloom girl's lone lantern light in black clothes t-shirt and skirt reading books pictures bad eyes motion flickers close by light fidget sitting motion something very quiet sit still and keep breathing still be quiet keep still breathing fall asleep and then wake up and still be here keep still and keep breathing keep being large film describes backwater glacier slides on glass down and over me in amusing coils and swirls and roller coaster motion small animals watch delighted jumping up and down and they wave to me it's all joy sit still and keep breathing keep silent keep breathing still breathing be still and just lie still under glass

darling blood crawling out with sharp fingers faint clouds in the distance some dust or smoke darling born to water deep or shallow clear dark forms underneath thoughts and dreams the days and nights that never dies but still bleeds there is a light that burns in the black water it wants bodies it wants life and it calls out and it's never silent and it's always there darling blood much too close please come closer so much closer to me careless and torn darling ruin someone with bright sharp eyes burning in the water still and content darling monster unseen creature drowning please be with me please go take me with you she can't leave she's sinking ghost thoughts stirring blood runs down her fingers the sea rising

the broken moon shivers and blinks her silver bloodstream ribbons flutter there are bloody streaks across the sky soft edged red tears breaking clouds ribbons flutter stuck in trees struck by lightning frozen caskets drift through space towards empty earth filled with corpses' dreams and wants she watches them break and burn beneath her the pulsing skies bleak rattle song reaching out the furious and bloody beak of the future snapping at our eyes
5.
grinding stones to find the way home static glares at the meager sun drying slow like clay dolls close to the ground like frost while red plants pour dry water hides in old tape recordings tired limbs rest on warm rooftops calm nights gently stroke their skin soft slow tired and boring love found in all the details chaos moon like wildfire lies bleeding in the sun
6.
moon beams on your head like a lullaby better tomorrow and worse in a week a ghost holds your hand helps you cross the street who are you alone where to go but home some flowers grow on the moon and some die in the sun leaving and laying down in whatever light found you don't want to live here with all this around and inside your head so where did you leave your voice lay still in the water wait for it to calm down the sun will bring you home you don't want to die here with all this around and inside you heart you're sleeping growing flowers in the bloodstream light in the drowning light and you know the sky is falling and the sea is rising and the sun shines forever what is left what is there to give and to have and hold and cherish and share daisies on the floor voice tired and weak and you hate it here can't go anywhere a ghost holds your hand helps you cross the street who are you alone where to go but home what have you done to the moon her light dim and bleeding bloodstream ribbons falling there is lead in your eyes you don't want to live here with all this around and inside you head you are numbness and panic as blood seeps through your clothes something's wrong with your eyes dive into the water you don't want to die here with all this around and inside you heart you're sleeping growing flowers in the bloodstream light in the drowning light and you know the sky is falling and the sea is rising and the sun shines forever what is left what is there to give and to have and hold and cherish and share
7.
the faint stars haunt the sky and the moon sees them die and she will weep and weep while they all bleed and bleed it wants love it wants life it is here where she dies and the moon weeps and weeps while the sea bleeds and bleeds
