the world, it won’t end it won’t end

what do i hold what do i hold in my arms?

                                                                         astonishing wrongs

astonishing hearts

                                                                      to my shame i lost the name  of my sister’s older lover

 astonishing home

                                                    astonishing harm

i bury their grief in my laugh and my laugh is my collapse

 oh mother paper your heart

oh father let me be strong

i am done, i am love, i am thirsty and      i am worse 

 oh sister water your eyes                           oh brother won’t you come down

                       i give myrrh, i give blood, but i’m still done and

i’m getting worse

         the world,                                                                                                                                                                               it won’t end

it won’t end      what do i hold         what do i hold in my arms?
