I've fallen on secrets Kept hidden from me keys lost I can see why I do not blame you for your dark eyes glance back to me or at least pretend keys lost i can see why keys lost i can see why you'd be looking for me
We sought to finely occlude ourselves in the latest slice of space shade lately vacanted: we sought to lock on a rightness of our pacing by this thinnest cue we sought our separation to be secret by its’ sense for knowing how the day fades it’s stain; we sought distance to dye us in rich notability, in that rare very color of no landmarks whereby to make the crossing to us: we sought for minced just-behindness to know what goal each shadows’ twisting sought we did not know ‘till evening pressed fleet rejected ash for every atmospheric dye how the vast plains that had not suited us yet stretched on to some navel under every sphere we did not know ‘till night equalized every lantern to locality how each inch of path we stepped beyond abided peeling-past of our own passing shade: each of us choosing a time to walk some patched light just a little farther each of us choosing some place to wait for day to broaden light beneath us we did not lose that we might twist back to our own technique of stance to observe our whichwhy of our own shadow joining to our hardest feet.
