love letter to myself after a rough time


Given the length of time
of the average human lifespan
I consider it a boon
that I met you so soon
and if there were news
from the home front of you
I now feel quite sure you would
send it ashore

given the length of time
people usually love each other
I feel like we've found each other
in another time

when I finally came to trust me
in that period of heavy seas
I knew self-desertion is a disease
when I looked up to see you


Waking by my one
with no help from new spring's weak sun
with aid from no one
I can feel it's begun



from The Wit of the Stair, released April 6, 2017
Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Todd Rittman. Recorded at Experimental Sound Studios, Chicago, IL, 2015.
