idle ties.

i walk alone, but i feel ya,
smiling upon me, i wonder
what you have drawn on your hands today,
runes to show you remember.

idle ties, ink and dyes,
woven arms, open wide,
you're with me tonight.

put on that tape that you made for me,
it's got marc bolan and vashti
ringin' my ear like a mission bell
come and go dive in the ink well

idle ties, ink and dyes,
sink and sigh,
token charms kept near by,
you're with me tonight.

now the wind answers your telephone,
come on, sing the city soft now
well it'll get to her once you're underground,
signal can't carry in the train down.

idle ties, sing and sigh,
open arms, open wide.
you're with me tonight.

vetiver; idle ties.

hebrews 11:16.

instead, they were longing for a better country-a heavenly one.
therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God,
for he has prepared a city for them.

look for the learning.

working on my dissertation perched on the windowsill in montmartre, listening to Bowerbirds, makes something that should be terrifying much too lovely. dear art & human rights, what a tremendous team you make <3 what wonderous change we can see through you. so much gratefulness to a Papa who calls and leads us to see such things...some so terrible and some so beautiful. but all real, and with us together, in this world.

"your face is all i saw"

right away, you looked like a good friend
like someone i knew when
i lived back in ohio, long ago
a full-filled room, i couldn't make it through
caught the sight of you as you headed for the door
thought i couldn't tell it seemed just as well not to know
i waved goodbye before i tried hello
the gallery felt crowded
i couldn't see the work upon the wall

your face was all i saw.

i wonder if we had...
anything at all.

vetiver-right away; errant charm.
