Approaching A Golden State

from by Lamniformes



Written in Logan Square, winter of 2013/2014 during the “polar vortex.” A song about desire.


I dream of golden light
And a deep red that isn’t mine
Silent and motionless
I hide behind your hair
In another life I would cut it all off
And run away to a church in the woods
In another life I would head west
And give myself over to the luminous
But here and now the cold only deepens
(One last thing before I go)
What keeps us warm won’t keep us alive
