two coins for the crossing


held so high a loft lifted
toward rising sun rise
chasing our airy dreams
drifting as such ghosts
over steaming lakes
up up and away away
how a wish to be as free
yet the cost of our memories
like lead in our pockets
hold us down hold us back
seven shiny silver soveregns
just enough to betray us

four for our eyes
two between us two
leave one behind
for the lie that binds us
bury it wherever we dare
for future seed fruit to sow

So to high to rise to fall
as we fall forward
in a spring back time step
the snicker snap of tiny tin jaws
teething stripped back bare trap
so that now even our uniquity
seems so similar if not the same
I have only this path I walk
that carried me to you
and carried you a way
swing so low
how much
how further
do we have to go
