lyrics

You had a mole
under your elbow
It didn't show
‘till you were waving goodbye
laying me low.

It was a hard punctuation point.
an end of discussion.
No supple sentence construction.
I made a mess of my line-
skewed a heart on the paper.

Do you remember our oath?
written in blood and in crayon.
A sandbox, a séance.
I marked a cross like a priest;
you etched a loop like a lawyer.

While I was asleep
with the care of a surgeon,
It cut through the curtain
A shock of light hit the bed and
drew a ring round your head.

Then it moved to the wall
and the words began forming -
Both love letter and warning,
But if your body's the pen then tell me
who's that writing?
