lyrics

Cope Alaska

We were worn with salt
down in the flat of our
city closing doors
against the wreck of our smooth winter shiver
like
we would go insane if we couldn't dance

I think I might be close to death
when I watch the night waver green
or pink
my vision a crumpled paper cup
hits the waste bucket

I don't know the name of you
but you taste like melancholy

If I could just know the name of you
I would thank you for this satisfaction in dark
this dry sweat of an evening
the chilled burn that is my throat

I would spin your sleep in season
like some bold frostbitten lover
peeled back bare
stripped like birch bark

Take this night in
carve your name
drink this down
