The Lazari

 

Down here where we are hollow
Heroes fall up to the stars again
Dusty halo of a heart
Illuminates your bruised and breathing skeleton

Endeavor to begin again
Negotiate the end again
Rewind our steps and then begin
Invent ourselves again, my friend

Out here beyond the walls
Rehearsing retrograde act ones and then
Rewinding clocks, reliving hours
Time to navigate the maze again

Endeavor to begin again
Negotiate the end again
Rewind our steps and then begin
Invent ourselves again, my friend

Down here where we are ghosts
Grace unmakes the hurt but not the curse, she said
So, full of dirt and grit and bile
Someday we’ll learn to hold our tongues,

Till then

Endeavor to begin again
Negotiate the end again
Begin to make amends and then
Invent ourselves again, my friend
