From the recording Pigeon's Throat



Your magnet bones and sinner phones are ringing for to march me home
Trail of fingers tapping time to loosen joints inside
Rubber elbow rubber knee / Rub her glory / Freedom ring
Stopping short of double time for double happy me

You're a string of pearls around the block from the front porch to the mailbox
Keep me hidden in your clock but don't go winding me
Kissin' cousins sister's sons / Breakfast bowls and dinner buns
Don't go eatin' all that fun / Save some bites for me


Wrap me around you from the inside
Tie me a lover's knot of roots and vines

Digging tunnels wearing lace / That miner's hat will show the way
Shining light on muddy mud / Just pray those knuckles keep
Shoulder burdens chipping blocks and crystal walls of jagged rocks
With your china gloves and velvet touch you cleared a road for me
Private gardens private eyes / Hidden ponds of private ice
You skated round me once or twice spinning free



Wide-eyed sideswipe

Stamp of magic, drops of rain / Sheets of cotton, quilts of stain
We're bundled up against the pain / We're sawing logs
Sawdust lumber fences built and fences mended, fences torn
And rusted locks and gates reborn and opened
Push me to the braking point / You make me look and give me spins
Saved me from the bitter wind and made me breathe
Target gardens warmer beds / Till me 'til the day I'm dead
I'm planting everything you said and water
