Foreign Crown

_____

Sitting in corners

I count minutes over ice

Waiting for ground

_____

A land without my king

I search for his fallen crown

I see no trail

_____

Belief in ground

Dare to trespass

This land is my haunting

_____

Covered in painted glass

You tear our eyes out

But we still sing your name

_____

Little girl with red hair

Read me a simple story

Then I will give your eyes back

_____

Tombstone flowers turn to ash

Throw them into my ocean

This fish will turn black

_____

Wishing to be lost in mountains

I can’t outrun telephone wires

So I sit

_____

Drowning at dawn

I watch for seagulls

Pretending I have companions

_____

I saw it before the first day

Ice turning to light

Descending my eyes were cut

_____

This time I want to go

I found no king

Just cracked fingers
